Hamilton Township is one of the four original townships of Warren County. Today, Warren County has eleven townships and just like most others, Hamilton Township was named for Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton has a generous number of parks and recreational centers that add to the natural dimensions of the neighborhood. Children enjoy a variety of playgrounds including the biggest in New Jersey, Veterans Park. Veterans Park is the best destination for you and your family on the weekends. Living in the township, you will realize that the Veterans Park is a multi-use park that accommodates all ages. It has biking and walking parks as well as many other amenities. Recreational features include picnic areas, a variety of memorials, formal gardens, a playground, and a shallow lake in the North Entrance. At the South Entrance, attractive features include athletic courts and fields for sports such as bocce, croquet, baseball, shuffleboard, badminton, and tennis. In addition, there are two dog parks. The Civil War and Native American Museum are historical areas located at the entrance. When the sun’s rays become unbearable, consider the Hamilton’s sprinkle pads to bust open a fire hydrant. The shallow lake at Veterans Park as well as Hamilton’s Park Splash Pad offers the best gate away for swimming and canoeing activities. Hamilton’s Park may not have the biggest playground, but the water play area makes it a fun destination to spend quality time with loved ones. It also means that you no longer have to worry about the summer months. An interesting fact about the Splash Pad is that it is fenced to enhance security and features in-ground buckets of water and sprinklers from overhead to make swimming activities more enjoyable.
