Understand[edit]

Hamilton Township is one of the largest townships in New Jersey, although it does not have a true "downtown", but a number of neighborhoods within the township form smaller commercial centers. Groveville, Hamilton Square, Mercerville, White Horse and Yardville are all census-designated places and unincorporated communities within the township which have separate postal addresses.

  • Grounds for Sculpture, +1 609 586-0616, 18 Fairgrounds Rd, Hamilton, [1]. Tu-Su 10AM-6PM. Outdoor art park in Hamilton on the former site of the old Trenton Fairgrounds; some of the old buildings have been incorporated into the site housing galleries, sculpture studios, a gift shop, and cafe. Selected sculptures on display and botanical plantings change throughout the seasons, but don't miss the three-dimensional tableau of Henri Rousseau's "The Dream" hidden in a grove. The highlights of the 35-acre, beautifully landscaped park have paved paths and those in wheelchairs should have no problem getting around; some paths, however, are gravel or stepping stones, and should be navigated with care. Peacocks wander the grounds and beg to be fed a breadcrumb or two. Parking is abundant. Special tours for the blind, those in wheelchairs, small children, artists, and students are available. Note: picnicking is not allowed inside the park. $10, $6 for children up to age 12, and $8 for students and minors over age 12 and seniors.
  • Hamilton Veterans Park, 2206 Kuser Road, +1 609-890-3502, [2]. 333 acre park with walking paths sprinkled through wooded areas and intermittent picnic grounds, rest stops and athletic fields. The west side of the park features a large lake centered by a water fountain. The north side offers a huge tennis complex, soccer and softball fields.  edit
