Cranbury Park

The park's expansive 227 acres offers a series of wooded trails and a dog friendly environment in the orchard. The Great Lawn presents a dramatic backdrop to wedding parties and festivals all year long. The park also features a challenging 18-hole Disc Golf Course that winds in and out of the woods.
