A Treasured New Jersey Resource

The Delaware & Raritan Canal and its towpath form a v-shaped linear
park that crosses the center of New Jersey, providing recreation, a
respite from the tumult of the state's busy centers, a history lesson in
the development of New Jersey, and drinking water for the million
people who live near this 66-mile greenway in the heart of the nation's
most densely populated state.
