The portion of the Raritan River Greenway Trail at Duke Island Park that was devastated by Hurricane Ida last year reopens today after extensive repairs, the Somerset County Park Commission has announced.

The commission released the following statement: “We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the beautiful pathway and scenery, but to keep in mind that this weekend will be very hot and to stay hydrated and safe.”

The commission offered “special thanks to Rep. Tom Malinoski and FEMA for securing the funding to do the repairs, and the Somerset County Engineering Division for overseeing the project.”

The trail, near the Head Gates Dam in Bridgewater, is appropriate for “a casual stroll or some serious workouts.” There are areas to stop and rest or simply “enjoy the stunning vistas.”
