65.6 miles by car from New York City, Hamilton Township of Mercer County in New Jersey is known as America’s favourite hometown. Apart from the Veterans Park sprawling over 350 acres, the Mercer County Park covering 2500 acres is one of the significant attractions of the township containing Mercer Lake.
The Assunpink Creek is another flood-control project run by Hamilton Township and it flows through the Van Nest Wildlife Refuge that covers 98 acres of the wildlife management area. The Sculpture Park boasts of over 270 sculptures, water features, gardens and landscaping. What was earlier the house and garden of Frederick Sayen and his wife, is now known as Sayen Park Botanical Garden in Hamilton Square. A day trip from New York to this 30 acres park, especially during spring will mesmerize you with walking trails, ponds, gazebos, bridges and numerous rhododendrons, azaleas and other bulbs. Visit on Mothers’ Day for the Azalea Festival and take a tour of Sayen Bungalow.
