NJ / PA Members, Come for a picnic! Mercer County Park, Sept 20. 2PM

This is a composite post of info from a few posts. Plan is for everyone bring something to eat and extra to share! We should have a good time! I will bring disposable grills if anyone wants to grill burgers, hot dogs, veggies, whatever! I'll try to have some extra picnic supplies, condiments, plates, napkins, etc. Maybe someone can contact dealers to see if they have any "give-aways"? (Danny, you there?)

Please post if you plan to attend, how many in your party:

dfwehman (1)
lsmart (2)
gusfraga (1.5)!
bigwarpguy (2)
herbvdh (1)
magnum (2)
Lilsmart (2)

If you have any questions, let me know! Please spread the word if you are on other forums, or have other smart friends. There is a posting on the forum calendar as well. Look forward to meeting you!

================================================== =====

West picnic site is the picnic. It is near the lake, there is a playground there, the picnic tables are under a roof. There is a reasonable amount of parking spots. It is a really nice place. There is a marina not far from it. They have row boat and paddle wheel boats. I am not sure if it will be open on the 20th of September. It is at one of the park.

================================================== =====

MERCER COUNTY PARK:

From US Route 1
cross Toll Bridge into New Jersey

on US Route 1. Take first right past Quakerbridge

Mall onto Quakerbridge Road. Travel almost 2 1/2


miles and turn left onto Hughes Drive. Proceed on

Hughes Drive for 1/2 mile to entrance of Mercer

County Park on the left.









From NJ Turnpike


take Turnpike South to Exit 8 at

Hightstown. Follow Route 33 West and turn right on

571. Travel on 571 for 2 1/2 miles to Route 535 and


proceed 4 miles to entrance of Mercer County Park

on the right.







MERCER COUNTY PARK NORTHWEST:

From Route 95




take Exit 7B and follow Route 206

North (Lawrenceville) Cold Soil Road and make left.

Keefe Road is approximately 1 1/2 miles on left. Park




entrance is on corner.

My daughter and I will do our best to be there.

While we live in Philly during the week, we're in Lake Harmony (the Poconos) on the weekends ... any thoughts on the best way to get there from, um, there?

I've not been to Lake Harmony, but spent many summers in Tannersville with my son / daughter at Mountain Spring Lake.

MapQuest shows the route down through Easton. It takes you on some smaller roads over to Route 31 in NJ. If you're not comfortable with the smaller roads, I'd take I-78, do you have a GPS? You'd go down 31 (past my home) to 295. Shows 2.5 hours. PM if you want more detailed directions. Hope to see you there!

No problem with smaller roads ... in fact, I think the drive along the Delaware is beautiful, particularly this time of year. I'll mapquest it and look at my routing options.

I will be there with my Dad. I hope all goes well. I hope it is a beautiful day. I plan to be there early to see if I can reserve that picnic area. I sent an e-mail to MCP about that day and hour but have not receive anything in response. I hope that is a good thing.

BWG, I'm not surprised they didn't respond. As I get responses from the PMs sent I will update the first post in this thread. If you are on any other forums (Smart site, 451.com, etc) you could advertise our M&G there too!

Some smarties have suggested starting earlier since they are traveling a distance. I will be there by 2PM so anyone wanting to come earlier is welcome to do so. I cannot change the title of the thread but will ask the moderator to do so! Please PM me if you can come, I'm keeping the top of this thread updated as I hear from people. Spread the word, see you there!
