Delaware River Trips

What better way is there to spend a summer Saturday than on the beautiful Delaware River? A outdoor summer series from Hunterdon County Park & Recreation invites families to explore the local waterways.
Arrive at theArboretum in Lebanon on Saturday at 8:15 AM. Kids ages 8 and up as well as adults can attend for $30 per trip.
Leaders will fit participants with a lifejacket and paddle and then drive to the river, where they will discuss maneuvering techniques and canoe safety. The group will paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle for about two more hours. Exact timing depends in part on natural forces, such as wind speed and the river’s water level. The goal is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour. Here’s the line-up:

Sat., Aug. 6: Delaware: Phillipsburg to Riegelsville

Sat., Aug. 20: Delaware: Kingwood to Bull’s Island

Sat., Sept. 3: Delaware: Phillipsburg to Riegelsville

Sat., Sept. 24: Delaware: Martins Creek to Phillipsburg

Sat., Oct. 8: South Branch

Sat., Oct. 22: Leaders’ Choice

Please note: Due to water levels or other circumstances beyond our control, it may be necessary to select an alternative river. Leaders may make this change at any time in order to provide a safe and fun experience.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
