During these unprecedented times, the world can feel like it’s getting smaller. Fortunately, state and most county parks have reopened in the Garden State — and that means that it’s possible to get outside, enjoy some fresh air and watch spring come to life.

On the border of Woodbridge and Perth Amboy, explore William Warren Park, open for passive recreation throughout its 126 acres. As of May 14th, residents can also play tennis on one of the park’s four courts, though at this time only singles play is permitted, and the courts close at 8pm.

Also in Perth Amboy, residents can enjoy the Raritan Bay Waterfront Park, a beautiful way to feel a sense of connection to the larger region. Enjoy 114 acres of parkland, including 86 acres of wetland with a unique range of plants and critters, all set along the scenic Raritan Bay. Take a walk or ride your bike to get some exercise and enjoy connecting with nature.

Take precautions while exploring: keep a distance of at least six feet from anyone you don’t live with, wear a mask, and continue to wash your hands. The COVID-19 threat continues, but we can work together to stay safe and healthy while enjoying all that this great state offers.
