Are there any Walking Groups in town?

I just saw a FB post for a Washington Walking group and I wondered if we had one here in Hackettstown? Looks like a nice way to get out an meet people an enjoy the nice weather. Appears they walk as a group once a week for an hour or so. Please let me know if it's "a thing". Thanks!

Sounds good! I just had my knee replaced so I move a bit slow for now, sorry. I don't want to hold you up but love the idea of new friends and fresh air. Any suggestions of a good walking area?


I was thinking around town, or maybe over at Doctors' Park they have a nice walking area. Can switch it up.

This Wednesday is out for me, but I am interested in future Wednesdays or other days. This is a wonderful idea for both exercise and meeting new friends who live local.

Field of Dreams is like walking around a Track.....Boring
The Nelson Hoyt Park off of Willow Grove in Hackettstown is so much better.

Sounds like enough people are interested to have many times and places :-) Meet on Wednesday at the parking lot on the Dr's park side? Or at the sandbar side?

I was thinking the Dr.'s park side towards the top near where the port-a-potty is? We could all meet up in that corner of the lot?

seems weird to walk around Doctor's Park. It's just a small medical complex on Seber Rd, no trials just sidewalks.

Might want to go a few hundred feet further on Seber to RIVERFRONT PARK which is the actual name of the park. :)

Stephens State Park is very nice and it also has a river. It's not far from Doctor's Park.

Hi Glenn, there isn't formal email list at this time. It's not that organized just yet ;) Just check back here for updates.

How does one ask to be put on an email
List without giving their email. Lol

And please stop calling it doctors park. The park’s name is Riverfront Park. There are literally 2 signs on the street that state that. Doctors park is the small medical complex

Hey everyone! So the weather doesn't look too great for tomorrow evening, bummer! Looks like if anyone is still interested we could meet up Thursday or try again for next Weds. I know a few people said they couldn't make it last week, but wanted to come to future walks :)

That park has history. It's been called Seber's grove, the Sandbar, the Fish Hatchery, the old Fish Hatchery, Morrison Field, Alumni Field, Riverfront Park and probably some others I'm forgetting :-)

You can tell how long someone has lived in town by what they call that park, I still think of it as the Sandbar and Sebers. Others think of it as Riverfront Park with the Dr's Park side and the Sandbar/Alumni side.. but everyone seems to know where it is, I guess that's all that counts.

In 1933 the CCC was used to improve the original fish hatchery, they had barracks somewhere nearby http://www.ccclegacy.org/Archives_New_Jersey.php
