Rosedale Road Woods
Rosedale Road, Princeton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey
14 acres


On the north side of Rosedale Road, east of  the Johnson School, and across the street from the old Robert Woods Johnson estate (Greenway Meadows Park?).


The Friends of Princeton Open Spaces and the Delaware & Raritan Greenway cooperated on the preservation of the Rosedale Road.

There was a desire to complete the block of preserved open space on either side of Rosedale Road, a "gateway" to Princeton, and enable the school to enlarge the area used for nature trails and environmental education.


The Rosedale Road Woods connects the new 55-acre Greenway Meadows Park with existing township land along Stony Brook, the Johnson Park School property, the former trolley line that is now a bike path that extends to Elm Road, and up The Great Road to Coventry Farm and Mountain Lakes Park. The Friends also originated a proposal for a pedestrian suspension bridge linking other township lands on either side of the Stony Brook, for which the township recently received a $500,000 grant.

10/12/04.  After visiting Greenway Meadows Park, from the east entrance I crossed the street and walked west along the sidewalk.  I noticed all the Delaware & Raritan Greenway signs and figured out that this must be Rosedale Road Woods.  There were no signs indicating the name of the place.  I did not find any trails, but it was a superficial walk, as I wanted to push on to Carson Road Woods.
