This Little Known Park In New Jersey Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All

New Jersey has dozens of incredible national, state, county and local parks, each with so much to offer. Some parks are more well-known while others are popular among locals, but a secret to those outside the immediate area. Colonial Park falls into the latter category… unless, of course, you golf.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
