Despite our beckoning for more park space in Hoboken, we still need to leave town to enjoy some of the more natural parks, trails and rivers. NJ has plenty of beautiful places for hiking, canoeing or other fun outdoor activities. Luckily, you don’t have to travel too far to experience this hidden treat.
Hoboken411 reader bmacqueens felt like making amends for some if his saucier comments on recent threads by pointing out this great local resource right near Hoboken.
“There is a curious little park at Exit 15X on I-95 called Laurel Hill. Nobody seems to know about it, as I have never seen it busy. (You need a car.) There is plenty of nice picnicking space, as well as a well-maintained playground area. However, the real kicker, is that you can go rent canoes and kayaks for what seems to be a very reasonable price. I wanted to bring the wife here last summer but the baby was too close to delivery by the time we discovered this little gem.
So, for anybody who would like to get out and do some wetland exploration in our own (forgotten) backyard, happy paddling!”
In addition to canoeing or kayaking, they also offer other fun things to do in the area, like eco-walks, chartered eco-cruises and other interesting environmental activities. So whether you’re a die-hard nature-lover or just looking for something different to do rather than going shopping or drinking, here’s a perfect place to start.
