MORRIS CANAL PARK AT OAK TREE LANE

SAVE THE DATE!!
The Township of Bloomfield along with the Recreation Department and the
Bloomfield Morris Canal Greenway Committee cordially invite you to
the ribbon‐cutting ceremony of the Township’s newest park:
Morris Canal Park at Oak Tree Lane
Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 11:00AM Sharp
 
The park, a surviving section of the historic Morris Canal, features a trail that once served as a
mule tow path and canal bed. Walk along the actual route coal boats once traveled through Bloomfield
as they made their 102‐mile journey across northern New Jersey. The Morris Canal’s five‐mile stretch
through Bloomfield has now been transformed into the Morris Canal Greenway, part of a statewide
effort to retrace the former canal’s footprint. The Morris Canal Greenway in Bloomfield connects the
Park at Oak Tree Lane in the northern part of town to Wrights Field on the southern end while
highlighting the canal’s remnants, other historical sites, parks and environmental assets.
Various dignitaries from Bloomfield Township, Essex County and the Canal Society of NJ, as well
as others, will be in attendance to mark this momentous occasion.
