As a child 50 years ago, we went to a picnic park off Rt. 30 (I think). It was called Colonial Park. Does it still exist?
The Colonial Park still exists and it offers picnic areas which are available by reservation. The park also has recreation facilities, horticultural exhibitions and natural attractions like ponds and lawns. Visit http://www.somersetcountyparks.org/parksfacilities/colonial/ColonialPark.html for more details.
50 yrs ago even my mom wasn't born yet I can't help :(
No one cares about the backstory just ask the question
