Van Nest Park   BACK TO FACILITIES PAGE

Features of this park include a picnic pavilion with grills and picnic tables, playground equipment, dock and boat launch and open space. The Township, in cooperation with the US Army Corps of Engineers and the NJ DEP, implemented an aquatic habitat restoration of the Grover's Mill Pond at Van Nest Park in 2009. Silt that had built up over decades was removed to improve the depth of the pond to about 6' to 7'. Artificial habitat structures were added and fish were stocked in the pond. Located on Cranbury Road portable bathroom facilities are available at this site. Pavilion rentals are also available. A memorial to the hysteria of War of the Worlds which "took place" in the hamlet of Grovers Mill is also on display.

Facilities:  Picnic Area (2),   Bike Racks (1),   Playground (1)
