Officials plan to dredge Glenwood Lake for sediment.

Sunday, November 1st, 2020 will be the last day of the season for the interior of the park to be open. The Clubhouse will also close for the season on that date. The front parking lot on Route 20 will remain open during daylight hours until Friday, April 16th, 2021. Thank you for a great season!
We traveled to Glenwood for a middle school basketball game and decided we should investigate the area
for hiking opportunities. Glenwood has a beautiful recreational park 1.7 miles from the school.
We hiked 3 miles around this gorgeous lake. Half of the hike was paved and the other half was a dirt path.
It was well maintained and very easy walking. It is located on Route 20 between Princeton and Bluewell.
You can fish, boat, hike, mountain bike, disk golf and great playgrounds. Gasoline engines are not allowed
but we are excited to return and kayak the entire lake. Adapting to a world that is full of fear, this
area gave us freedom to run around in a safe space away from the paranoia. Thank you for such a beautiful
place to wander in the woods to regain the peacefulness that our minds require to be healthy.
We can’t wait to return with our kayaks. The old cabin standing by the lake was reportedly the first
courthouse of Mercer County. It is absolutely breath taking...

I think Glenwood recreational Park is one of the best small parks around, it has good hiking trails
for getting the exercise and that you need, the lake is just absolutely beautiful, it is great for
birdwatching and wildlife is so plentiful. Great picnic shelters, it’s just a awesome all around park!!!
