The Middlesex Greenway is a 3.5 mile long rails-to-trails initiative that opened in 2012 to transform the old Lehigh Valley Railroad line into a paved recreational trail suitable for walking, bicycling and jogging. The trail runs through the municipalities of Metuchen, Edison and Woodbridge and is part of the East Coast Greenway which spans nearly 3,000 miles between Canada and Key West.
We welcome input and feedback regarding the Middlesex Greenway in order to understand the level of awareness, use and impact it has on the community. The results of the survey will enable recommendations and strategies so that it may become a viable, sustainable and vital trail for everyone to use and enjoy.
The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed by clicking on this link. (Or paste this address to your browser: https://rutgers.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_aVne4231XdMX6m1)
Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey as feedback is critical to the success of the Middlesex Greenway.
The Middlesex County
Department of Parks and Recreation provides recreational and cultural
activities for the general public throughout the year. Extensive facilities
for summer sports, winter sports, theater and concert programs offer
opportunities for enjoyment to County residents. The park system consists
of 18 county parks encompassing 6,631 acres. Thirteen of these parks
contain active recreational facilities and five others are conservation
areas or are being held for future recreational development. The County
is in the process of acquiring 7,000 acres of open space through the
Open Space Trust Fund, and an active farmland preservation program has
preserved 2,500 acres. The Middlesex County Improvement Authority operates
three golfing facilities: The 36 hole Tamarack Golf Course in East Brunswick,
the Meadows at Middlesex in Plainsboro, and the Raritan Landing Golf
Course in Piscataway.
Old Bridge Waterfront Park is now open.
