Stony Brook Crossing

In 2010, Princeton Township and Friends of Princeton Open Space celebrated the opening of this new pathway, including 125-foot and 60-foot pedestrian bridges. The Stony Brook Crossing completes a critical linkage that enable cyclists and pedestrians to travel from the Princeton Battlefield and Institute Woods area all the way through Mountain Lakes Preserve and Woodfield Reservation. The pathway takes visitors along the scenic Stony Brook River, connecting them to various nature trails across Princeton.

Linking Princeton’s parks to each other and to the surrounding communities has been a goal of Princeton Township and Friends of Princeton Open Space since the early 1990s. In 2002, the Township Engineering Department obtained a $500,000 Federal Transportation Enhancement grant for the construction of the main bridge. A National Recreational Trails grant, a State Livable Communities Grant and a State Bikeway grant were also received, which provided an additional $290,000 in grant funding to finance the $950,000 construction project. With the help of D&R Greenway Land Trust and Friends of Princeton Open Space, the Township purchased land above the Stony Brook to enable handicapped accessibility on the pathway. Let It Grow, Inc. of River Edge, New Jersey constructed the bridges and new pathway linkage to Route 206. Friends of Princeton Open Space constructed the pedestrian pathway along the Stony Brook to connect the bridges and southern pathway to Greenway Meadows Park and Rosedale Road.

Location: The new Stony Brook pathways and bridges can be accessed from Rosedale Road at Greenway Meadows Park, or from Route 206 at Hutchinson Drive, north of the service entrance to TPC Jasna Polana.
