Colonial Park – Somerset County Parks & Playgrounds





3 Reasons my Family Loves Colonial Park


  • The roller table at the playground is a big hit with my 4 year old son. He loves to hold on to the top bars and roll his way down the table. He also enjoyed the swings, the stand up see saw and the sway.


  • Playing mini golf! This course doesn’t have clown faces and large toy structures but my son didn’t seem to mind! He had a blast trying to putt his way around the course even if it took him 10 tries and I’ll be honest a he did cheat a few times by picking up the ball and placing it in its hole.


  • The picnic areas are great to rest in between all the fun at this park. They are covered so there is plenty of shade to take a break from the hot sun and it is very clean!
