Skillman Park is the Township’s newest park, owned and managed by Somerset County. The park is approximately 250 acres with access from Route 601 and Burnt Hill Road, using Main Boulevard. The park features beautiful vistas and a 2.25-mile paved multi-use loop trail. There are several parking lots located off of Main Boulevard where you can park and easily access the trail. Several benches are located along the trail so that you can relax and enjoy the landscape. Chess tables are also available; simply bring your own chess pieces and enjoy a game.

The Township Open Space Committee, in partnership with the Somerset County Park Commission, has begun a multi-phase reforestation project along Rock Brook. As you walk along the brook, you’ll notice many small trees have been planted between the pathway and the Brook. The goal is to reforest the full length of the brook from Burnt Hill Road to Route 601 which will help minimize soil erosion, improve water quality, and provide habitat. With the help of many volunteers from local schools and scouting groups, as well as volunteers from local businesses, over 150 trees have been planted.
