Bowcraft Playland was an amusement park in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, USA.
The park dates back to 1946, when skiing and archery enthusiast Ted Miller and his wife Isabel Miller opened a ski slope, archery range, and archery store called Bowcraft Park. Over time, the attraction evolved into an amusement park. 
In 2008, the park switched to a pay once admission.
In 2016, developer ATA purchased the property with plans to build 190 apartments and 10 townhouses. The application was reviewed by the Scotch Planning Board on September 26. Meanwhile park management released a statement saying that despite the planned development, closure was not imminent and that the park would be opening for 2017.
The final day of operation was September 30, 2018. While park management did not confirm the closure, all of the park's rides were listed for sale together and the park's social media accounts were deactivated, however the park's website remains operational as of December 2020.
On December 18, 2019 the park was demolished to make way for the new development.
