Getting here and home:

Don't drink and Drive! Rahway River Park has plenty of parking. See map. BUT do you really want to drive?

There are 3 NJ transit train stations within 3 miles of the park. Uber rides to and from the train stations look to be under $15 and guess what??? We have $15 gift cards for first time Uber users! We are closest to the Cranford station (Raritan Valley Line) and Rahway or Linden (North Jersey Coast Line/Northeast Corridor Line). 

NJ Transit buses also stop just outside of the park (115 or 48 to St. Georges Ave, Near West Scott Ave. in Rahway).

Cool Quotes:

“There are more old drunks than there are old doctors.”
― Willie Nelson

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but in the very least you need a beer.”

​-Frank Zappa
