Description/History

This park features a water fountain with granite pavers, which were dedicated to commemorate Cranbury’s tercentennial anniversary in 1997, and the Judy Dossin Meadow, dedicated in 2007 to honor the former Parks Planning Commission Chairperson. The meadow blooms with crocuses each spring.

The primary purpose of this park is to provide “alternative recreation” space, for unorganized, informal recreation activities on open fields and landscaped areas.  Some of the activities include walking, jogging, biking, inline skating, Frisbee, kite flying, reading, dog walking and yoga.  This park was intended to provide park space for Cranbury residents, especially seniors and adults, not participating in organized team and field sports.

The park was given to the township by the developer of Cranbury Green in the early 1990s.  More.
