The Middlesex Greenway
The Middlesex Greenway is, for the most part, a hidden open space resource with in the communities of Metuchen, Edison, and Woodbridge. Situated on an abandoned portion of Lehigh Valley rail corridor, this 3.5-mile long, 42-acre corridor was purchased by the County of Middlesex as a rails-to-trails project for recreational use.

Opened in September 2012, the Middlesex Greenway provides a 10-foot wide, paved trail suitable for walking, biking and jogging. Several fully accessible entrances provide access along the entire length of the trail, connecting a diverse array of neighborhoods to area parks, schools and shopping.
