Located on Cliff Road in Woodbridge Township, this 36 acre park was dedicated on October 27, 2001. The park is named in memory of Alvin P. Williams, a Woodbridge Township Police Officer who made the ultimate sacrifice while attempting to assist four young children in a Township stream in 1979. Officer Williams and two of those children lost their lives that day, while the other two children made it to safety.
In 1999, the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders entered into a partnership with Woodbridge Township and the Middlesex County Improvement Authority to remediate, restore and develop the Sewaren Peninsula into a multi-use park facility. The blighted site on which this park was constructed had been spoiled by the disposal of dredged material. Building the park enabled the County to not only reclaim the waterfront but to provide much needed recreation facilities for residents in the area. While you look over the Arthur Kill, take a nice stroll on the paved path and learn about the historic and environmental significance of the site through its interpretive signage.
