    Beautiful park and paths. Was visiting the area and was fortunate to be able to spend an hour walking and jogging the paths here. Could you tell me the distance of both the front and back walkways? Thank you!

    From the Wantage Twp website:

    Take a Walk Around Woodbourne Park

    How far did I go?

    Roughly speaking, the original loop of the walking path (walking from the parking lot closest to Sherman Ridge Road, around the three ball fields, around the skating rink, up to the cul-de-sac and back to the parking lot) is about 3,400 feet.

    A half mile would be 2,640 feet; three quarters of a mile would be 3,960 feet, so this trek is between a half mile and 3/4 mile in distance. The new walking path that connects the original part of the park to the new part of the park is about 550 feet. If you walk the new connecting roadway instead of the walking path, it is a little longer – about 800 feet from the cul-de-sac to the new little league field.

    The new loop in the back of the park is about 2,800 feet, making it just a little over a half mile.

    One whole loop would be 7,350 feet +/-. A mile and a half would be 7,920 feet, so starting at the cul-de-sac, one complete loop and then continuing again on the new walking path from the cul-de-sac to the new little league field in the back of the park (just past the brook) would be pretty close to a mile-and-a-half. Ideally, Wantage Township will open the gates of both Woodbourne Park and Lott Road fields when our DPW employees begin work; depending on the time of the year, the DPW workday will begin at either 6:30 a.m. or 7 a.m.
