Park Advisory - All park events and picnics are currently suspended until April 30, 2020. Parks and open space will remain open to the public for passive recreation, including roads, parking areas, trails, lakes and other open space areas. However, restrooms, comfort stations, playgrounds, dog parks, basketball and tennis courts, the flying field, and similar facilities are closed until further notice in order to protect public health and safety. We ask that the public practice social distancing and refrain from large groups while enjoying our parks and open spaces.
Built by Eagle Scout Candidate, David Wolverton (Boy Scout Troop 132), the new 18-hole championship disc golf course is an exciting new addition to Middlesex County’s existing recreation opportunities. The course-located in Thompson Park
in Monroe Township-was designed by NJ’s only certified disc golf course designer, Adam Harris. “I am confident that many residents will enjoy this unique addition to Thompson Park.” says Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios.
Disc golf originated in 1976. Play is similar to the traditional game of golf. In disc golf, players throw plastic discs (ex. Frisbees) into a basket for the lowest possible score.
“This is a fun and exciting new feature for our parks,” says Freeholder Charles E. Tomaro. “I’m thrilled that one of our young residents took on this project and is opening up a new recreational avenue to our residents.”
