Located on the banks of the Raritan River in Piscataway and Highland Park, this 473 acre park is extremely popular and filled with activity all year long. The park is named after the “Johnson” family, who founded the pharmaceutical firm “Johnson & Johnson” and donated the original 100 acres of land for the park to Middlesex County.  Everything from picnic groves and sports fields to an animal haven, and even a restored 18th century village can be found in Johnson Park, which is just across the river from the revitalized City of New Brunswick.

A wide variety of farm and exotic animals are on display within fenced-in areas at the animal haven which is open from dawn to dusk daily. This facility is visited and enjoyed daily by the young and old alike. Interpretive signage is displayed to provide an educational as well as a fun experience and best of all - its free! In Johnson Park you will see pigs, goats, an emu, deer, a mini horse, and many other exciting animals!
