DOVER — On Saturday, June 15 at 11:20 a.m., the Town of Dover, in partnership with grant sponsors T-Mobile and The Canal Society of New Jersey, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the Morris Canal Towpath.

In addition to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, The Town is hosting a free, family-friendly picnic at 100 Princeton Avenue (Waterworks Park). The event will serve summer favorites like hot dogs, hamburgers, and other refreshments at no cost to the public. The event includes a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This less-than-a-mile trail connects with The Morris Canal Greenway, envisioned as a 111-mile continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail linking six counties in northern New Jersey. Once completed, it will extend from the Delaware River on the west to the Hudson River on the east.

“Many greenway segments have already been completed, but much work remains to create a continuous trail,” said the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA). “In partnership with the Canal Society of New Jersey and the Morris Canal Working Group, we completed a study that presents a plan for a continuous greenway closely aligned with the historic canal route.” For more information, visit Morris Canal Greenway.

The town collaborated with Dover College Promise students, who used their class time to design the landscape of this historic trail. These highly engaged students inspired this grant application.
