Welcome to the South Brunswick Department of Parks and Recreation
Parks, Playgrounds, Tennis Courts and Basketball Courts are open for your enjoyment.
We believe strongly that education should be fun and exciting. Since our first classes in 2002, our Chess Wizards have inspired thousands of children across the United States and Canada to think logically, solve problems, win graciously, and learn from defeat. Our academy is so successful because our approach is so unique. Chess classes and lessons are based around our original, fun, and high-energy Chess Wizards curriculum.
Regardless of a child’s ability Chess Wizards makes chess fun for all!
CHESS WIZARDS is presently an ONLINE Chess program for all ages and abilities.

Ireland Brook Conservatory Area: The Ireland Brook Conservation Area is 520 acreas and locatined at the intersection of South Brunswick, North Brunswick and East Brunswick Townships. It is ideal for passive recreation activities such as hiking, photography and nature study. The combination of upland habitat and riparian vegetation along the Ireland Brook make it an ideal area for wildlife viewing. The Forest Brook Trail (0.8 miles) can be accessed at the Riva Avenue Trailhead. The Ireland Brook Trail (1.8 miles) can be accessed from the Parkview Court parking area. Hikers can also connect to Davidson’s Mill Pond Park via the Farrington Lake Trail.
