RED BANK, NJ: Red Bank is truly blessed with some of the nicest parks in state.  Several situated along the Navesink River, a few in the middle of neighborhoods, and even a couple of “pocket parks.”

Each, in their own way, are truly gems.

A lot of residents may not even be aware that some of these parks exist, or even their location.

TAPinto Red Bank will be offering a series of articles on the Parks of Red Bank.

As the winter weather kicks in and the pandemic threat continues, it’s important to get out of the house, not only for the exercise, but for your sanity.

One of the neatest little enclaves is Mohawk Park, located just a stone's throw away from the Count Basie Park on Henry Street.

Situated with Newman Springs Road to the south and the electrical substation to the northwest, Mohawk Park offers a nice pond of approximately three hundred feet in length.

As you sit on the park bench or stroll the walking path, the park gives off a vibe of industrial awareness and tranquility.

Keep a sharp eye out for the large Blue Heron stalking along the shoreline looking for quick snack.
