Located in Bridgewater Township, Duke Island Park is a site of rich beauty offering varied recreational experiences. Truly an "island" park, it is traversed by the historic Raritan Power Canal. The Somerset County Park Commission acquired this 340.5 acre site in 1958, and has developed it to provide a wide variety of active and passive recreational opportunities and special events for park visitors. Duke Island Park also offers bike trails for Somerset County biking enthusiasts, as well as softball fields and ice skating in the winter. Activities include biking, softball, walking/jogging trail, fishing, hiking trail, ice skating, cross-country skiing, birdwatching, picnicking, and playgrounds.
