In 1998, the Heathcote Meadows Preserve was one of the earliest parcels acquired under the Middlesex County Space Recreation and Farmland and Historic Preservation Act.  Nestled just outside the small village of Kingston, the preserve offers a glimpse into the rich farming history of the area.  Combined with Heathcote Park (South Brunswick Township), the Cook Natural Area, Mapleton Preserve and the Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park, the preserve creates a significant green-belt around the village of Kingston, provides stream protection for Heathcote Brook and Carter Brook and provides wonderful opportunities for hiking, walking and wildlife viewing.
