Union Lake Crossing Adds Adventure Park

Millville’s Union Lake Crossing shopping center on Delsea Drive at the Route 55 exit already offers Target, Kohl’s, ShopRite, and Ross Dress for Less, and now it’s extended its streak with the impressive opening of Fun City Adventure Park.

The Millville location is the second in New Jersey for Fun City, which made its Garden State debut in Blackwood (Camden County) in August 2022. The company currently operates 20 locations in seven states extending from Maine to New Jersey, with 13 additional sites under construction or with signed leases—including initial locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Illinois, and Kansas.

Mark Irgang, CEO of Union Lake property owner Irgang Group, commented: “Fun City adds a new dimension that should drive more traffic to our existing tenants, lengthen the time of shopper visits and bolster Union Lake’s appeal to new tenants—including restaurants and other complimentary uses.”

The family entertainment center occupies most of the former Dick’s Sporting Goods store. Among other features, it includes trampoline courts, a Ninja course, a ropes course, a zipline, dodgeball, basketball, a playground, a battle beam, a foam pit, bumper ball, and an arcade.

Fun City Adventure Park has a lease for a 36,500-square-foot anchor position at the 393,000-square-foot power center. Other recent signings include Five Guys, Crumbl cookies, Skechers and Inspira Health. Union Lake Crossing also recently celebrated the opening of Cato Fashions, as well as an expansion of the Five Below store.

Union Lake Crossing received 4.5 million visits in the last 12 months.The ShopRite in this center is ranked number 26 out of the 141 locations in NJ for visits totaling 1.6 million visits per year.

The Crossing recently welcomed Boot Barn’s second New Jersey location. Other prominent tenants are PetSmart, Staples, Footwear, Party City, Buffalo Wild Wings, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Kawa Thai, and Sonic.

In a separate development, Irgang Group—a Nyack, NY-based real estate investment and management firm that acquired the 43.39-acre site in November 2021—announced that it has appointed R.J. Brunelli & Co., LLC, as exclusive leasing agent for Union Lake. The Old Bridge, NJ-based retail real estate brokerage is now offering 10 spaces at the center, ranging from 1,945 to 15,000 square feet—including a pad site and endcap unit that each have the potential for a drive-through.

“These remaining spaces present tremendous opportunities for tenants to open in a high-traffic, high-visibility power center,” said Mario Brunelli, VP & principal of the brokerage. “We are already in discussions with a number of prospects.”

“We look forward to working with Mario and his team on our efforts to further improve our merchandise, restaurant and personal services offerings at Union Lake,” said Irgang. “Concurrently, we continue our endeavors to physically upgrade the property, denoted by the recent installation of new LED lighting throughout all parking areas. This project elevated illumination levels, while conserving energy.”
