For those whose New Year’s Resolutions include losing weight, dieting and/or exercise, the Somerset County Park Commission can offer some assistance.

Individuals looking for brisk weekly walk are invited to join a weekly walking group that meets every Wednesday at 9:30 A.M. at the Duke Island Visitor’s Center in Bridgewater for a healthy walk through Duke Island Park along a beautiful stretch of the Raritan River.

Coffee, tea, and treats will be provided, but those who are trying to diet might want to avoid the treats.

Duke Island Park is located off Old York Road in Bridgewater. The walk is free of charge and continues weekly as weather permits.
