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.
