Duke Island Park

Duke Island Park is a beautiful park in Bridgewater, Somerset County, New Jersey.  We liked it so much that we actually visited this park twice over Labor Day weekend!

To get more information about the park and download a park map, visit the Somerset County Park Commission here.

When you first enter the park, you see these lovely wide open spaces.  There is a large playground for kids and some ball fields.  Several large covered patios house picnic tables, which would be perfect for a barbeque.  The park also hosts concerts at its bandstand.

Raritan Power Canal
 The park really is an island, bordered by the Raritan Power Canal and the Raritan River.

There are two main types of trails in the park.  A dirt and gravel path lies along the canal, and a paved bike path neighbors the river and travels through some of the park interior.

This park is perfect for taking a long walk or bike ride - the trails are flat and the park is so picturesque!
