Local Summer Fun By Jennifer Landrieu, Director If you’re looking for some local summer fun, here are a few suggestions: Attend CAMP NORTH BRANCH! There’s still room in Weeks 3 and 4. Visit the birds at the Raptor Trust in Basking Ridge (donations accepted). Take a nature walk or bike ride at Duke Farms in Hillsborough. Ride a steam train at the Black River and Western Railroad in Flemington. (or visit Northlandz in Flemington – the largest model railroad museum) Watch fireworks on the 4th of July from North Branch Park, Milltown Road, Bridgewater. Go to a concert at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater most summer Sundays. Pack a picnic dinner! See a drive-in movie at White Oak Park in Branchburg. Feed the animals at Johnson Park on River Road in Piscataway. (Playgrounds, too.) Spend the day at the beach at Round Valley Reservoir just off Route 22 in Hunterdon County. Make your own frozen yogurt creation at Frozen Falls, mention NBRC Preschoool and 15% of your purchase will benefit the Preschool. Chase the hot air balloons from the NJ Festival of Ballooning July 26-28th. The festival is at Solberg Airport in Readington. Star gaze at the RVCC Planetarium and stay for a laser light show!
