WEST WINDSOR, NJ -- It's time to plan that spring or summer picnic in the park with family and friends. The Mercer County Park Commission is now accepting reservations for the 2020 season at the five county-owned picnic areas: the West and East Picnic Areas in Mercer County Park; Rosedale Picnic Area in Mercer Meadows; Princeton Country Club Picnic Area in West Windsor and Valley Road Picnic Area in Hopewell Township. The picnic areas are open to in-county and out-of-county residents.
Because of the popularity of the picnic grounds, the Park Commission highly recommends creating a Community Pass account. For returning users, the Park Commission suggests revisiting your account and ensuring credentials are accurate.
Reservations will be made automatically on a first-come, first-served basis. Weekend dates are among the most popular; no date is guaranteed.
