Lots of open space to walk, great for kids in the warmer months with minaiture golf and swan boats, big pond, trees, playground and food. As it gets cooler, great for that quiet walk, a hot cup of coffee and perhaps even some peace. Worth getting to know.

My kids loved it when young. Has a nice leash free area for dogs. We still love walking the park and garden.

Colonial Park is easy to find and has lots of parking. It is well taken care of. Visit the rose garden and walk the grounds. You may even learn something new!

This is a huge park with walking trails (cement) and most likely in the woods, although I always use the walking trails. Ponds and beautiful flowers throughout the park. Also a beautiful rose garden in a near by area also a part of the park. Open all year there are several seasonal events that are free to get in. Plenty of ample parking.

This was the park that my parents took me to all growing up! We had group picnics and made such memories. The park still is so immaculately maintained and is the best place to spend the summer!

This was the big local park in the town where I grew up. It is beautiful. Many joggers and walkers use the paths which are paved. There is a PARR Course. Nice tennis courts which can be used at night when the park is open. Swing and play areas for children. There is a beautiful Rose Garden on the grounds.Paddle Boats are available. You can fish in the man made ponds and streams. There is at least one softball field on the grounds. The Spooky Brook golf course is at the border of the park. You are also very close to the Delaware and Raritan Canal and the Millstone River!

they also have paddle boats, though i've never used them. i usually just go for the nature trail. it's 7 minutes from my office and the only option for a nature walk...and ya know what, it does the job. i really appreciate that little patch of woods and the pond next to it!
