Fun dog walking locations – New Jersey

By Kyle Morse

As the warmer weather season is here, I thought it would be a fun idea to come up with thoughts for dog walking locations in our New Jersey service areas. Having grown up in Middlesex county I’m familiar with the greater region of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York. There are so many enjoyable walking trails to bring your dogs (and yourself) for exercise in central New Jersey when there is beautiful, sunny weather. For the purposes of this fun post, I looked up locations in Somerset county, Mercer county, Monmouth county, and Middlesex county. After what was clearly a deep dive, I found dog parks, nature trails, and general large neighborhood-sized parks. I’m sure I missed a few as I don’t know all those nooks and crannies in the region and I’m sure you may know of some other ones.

Somerset County locations: Within the Hillsborough area, you’ll find the Six Mile Run State Park trail in East Millstone. The Colonial Park Dog Park in Somerset is also super fun and has a cool fenced in area with tree cover.

Monmouth County locations: You’ll find the Turkey Swamp Park near West Freehold, as well as Chestnut Point in the Manasquan Reservoir. The Marlboro Dog Park provides great fenced in exercise and socialization opportunities in an open air environment.

Mercer County locations: Enjoy the expansive and wide walking paths within Mercer County Park near Edinburg and Mercerville. The distinct campus of Princeton University allows dogs to be walked and offers quick exercise routes through town. There is also the Rocky Top Dog Park that is on the border of South Brunswick which offers cool ramps and jumps for the dogs.

Middlesex County locations: Middlesex Greenway trail in Metuchen, Johnson Park and Donaldson Park in Highland Park, Sondek Park in South Brunswick, North Brunswick Community Park, and Thompson Park in Monroe Township. Located in Heavenly Farms within East Brunswick, you’ll find a dog park that’s totally fenced in and provides large sprinting space for your pups to burn some energy.

I hope you enjoyed the suggestions. If you want further info about any of these locations or other ones, don’t hesitate to reach out!
