Woodlynne is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 2,978, reflecting an increase of 182 (+6.5%) from the 2,796 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 249 (+9.8%) from the 2,547 counted in the 1990 Census.
Woodlynne was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 19, 1901, from portions of Haddon Township. In 1906, the City of Camden made an unsuccessful attempt to annex Woodlynne.
First settled in 1681, a property owned by Mark Newbie was called Lynnewood, named for the linden trees in the area. The name was changed from Lynnewood to Woodlynne in 1892, due to conflicts with the name of another municipality.
Woodlynne Amusement Park, which encompassed Woodlynne Lake (no longer in existence), operated between the years 1895 and 1914 in the area that now comprises the town of Woodlynne. The New Camden Land Improvement Company commissioned the creation of Woodlynne Amusement Park on the estate of Charles M. Cooper in 1892. A fire destroyed the park in 1914. Homes built over the old lake tend to flood in the basements during heavy rainstorms.
The Camden and Suburban Railway Company, formed in 1896, established a housing development in a section of Woodlynne Amusement Park, which contributed to its incorporation as Woodlynne Borough in 1901.
