The juxtaposition between natural beauty and sophisticated architecture are a significant reason why Cranford Township is so unique.
The Rahway River winds through the center of the community and is home to numerous parks along the wildlife enriched waterway. The Rahway River Parkway, Jacksons Pond and Bloodgoods Pond provide boating, canoeing, fishing and hiking opportunities for visitors and residents. The Cranford Canoe Club rents kayaks and canoes to members of the public who are interested in navigating the river from within the shorelines.
Nomahegan Park is a popular destination within the township. The park’s hiking trails, picnic areas, bike paths, athletic fields and playgrounds are a serene getaway from everyday life. Nomahegan’s blank winter canvas erupts with colorful blossoms in the spring and paints the skyline with saturated hues of foliage in the fall.
