The Great Road, Montgomery Township, Somerset County, NJ
The park is not far from the Swan Tract: Opossum Road Woods.
Heading south on Route 206, turn right on the Georgetown and Franklin Turnpike (Route 518); turn left onto the Great Road (Route 601); park on the left side of the road, across from Cherry Valley Drive. The park is just south of the Historic Village of Blawenburg.
A tributary of Beden's Brook goes through the territory.
The area consists mainly of a very large open field. There is a trail (part of the Montgomery Pathways) along Beden's Brook.
