Joseph Medwick Memorial Park
This is the second of two walks we did this morning in Middlesex County, New Jersey. This is about 6-7 minutes by car from Pin Oak Forest, and across the Rahway River from Hawk Rise Sanctuary, which we walked five years ago. The entire track is paved, so this is more suitable for a walk, with some birding opportunities along the way.

Using this map, we parked in the lot north of Open Grove and headed northeast for the first observation deck, then continued west to the other observation deck, next looping south around the perimeter of the soccer field, before returning back to the lot where we parked. We next did the winding path east of Open Grove (also paved), and then the loop around Open Play Area, before eating lunch at one of the picnic benches in area '2'.

Total distance walked was 2.5 miles in about 80 minutes.
