 Middlesex Greenway Named "A Great Public Space"


The Middlesex Greenway is a picturesque open space resource within the communities of Metuchen, Edison, and Woodbridge. Situated on a historic portion of Lehigh Valley rail corridor, this 3.5 mile long, 42-acre corridor was purchased by the County of Middlesex in 2002 as a rails-to-trails project for recreational use.
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. 
 The above video, entitled "Green Access" gives basic information about the beautiful Middlesex County Greenway. 
"A Green Future" provides a brief introduction to the Middlesex County Greenway as well as background on proposed initiatives and greenway enhancements.

The non-profit Edison Greenways Group was instrumental in the acquisition of the abandoned Lehigh Valley Rail corridor, bringing together local, county, state and federal agencies to secure this rail line for the Middlesex Greenway. They provide educational walks along the Middlesex Greenway, organize clean-ups and promote the Greenway as a viable transportation alternative for local residents and a living classroom for educational initiatives.

A portion of the Middlesex Greenway is also part of the East Coast Greenway, a developing trail system spanning nearly 3000 miles between Canada and Key West. For more information, please visit
