Greenway Meadows/Johnson Education Center

Size: 60 acres

History & Information: In 2001, D&R Greenway Land Trust led the preservation of the Robert Wood Johnson estate on Rosedale Road. When completed, 55 acres were deeded to Princeton Township, creating the Greenway Meadows park and the remaining 5 acres surround D&R Greenway’s home, the Johnson Education Center. Princeton Township has incorporated walking paths, playground equipment, picnic areas, playing fields and public restrooms into the rolling, natural landscape of the original estate.

Opened in 2006, the Johnson Education Center is housed in a circa-1900 barn, renovated by D&R Greenway. The JEC is a focal point for land preservation and stewardship activities throughout New Jersey. Surrounding the JEC, D&R Greenway has installed native plantings, the Edward T. Cone Grove, the Hartman Garden Path, the Carroll K. and Frederick P. King, Jr. Terrace, the Ellsworth Terrace, and Meredith's Garden for Inspiration - filled with native plants and nature-inspired sculptures - integrating the public park with the education center. The JEC is also home to the Marie L. Matthews and the Olivia Rainbow art galleries, which display rotating works from a variety of media inspired by the natural world. Conference room space is available for rent at the JEC- please contact D&R Greenway for details.
