Green Acres Success Stories

Princeton Soccer Association / Reed Property, Princeton Township, Mercer County, 118 Acres

The Green Acres Program acquired this property adjacent to the D&R Canal State Park to preserve its historic significance and provide for passive recreation. The property, adjacent to the preserved Institute Woods and Princeton Battlefield State Park, is part of a region that was critical to the American Revolution. In addition, a significant portion of the Stony Brook will be protected and now provide access to the public for fishing access and passive recreation opportunities adjacent to the Canal State Park.
