Mill Pond Park
Mill Pond Road, Montgomery Township, Somerset County, NJ


Heading south on Route 206, turn left onto Maple Street and make immediate left onto Harlingen Road (passing by the parking areas for Montgomery Park) and turn right onto Mill Pond Road; the parking area is half way down the road on the left.


November 1, 2003. There is an asphalt walking/biking path (part of the Montgomery Pathways) that goes along the borders of the many soccer fields in the park. Part of the way the path goes parallel with Dead Tree Run. The trail ends at River Road near the Millstone River. Mill Pond itself is located across Mill Pond Road from the park.
