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.

Walking trails around South Brunswick

The Freedom Trail walking and bikeway is an ongoing open space and park development project for which the goal is to link parks and open space areas throughout the Township ultimately creating a bikeway system. The following links have been completed:

Kingston Freedom Trail:  From Heathcote Park to the D&R Canal.  (Click here for directions)

Other walking Trails in South Brunswick

Walking trails at Woodlot Park:   An eagle scout has marked 3 trails through the wood behind Woodlot Park.  The trail head is located next to field 3 (the furthest field from the Community Center, by the sledding hill).   Trail maps are also available at the Community Center (knock on our door and ask for one). Click Here for a short video

The Sondek Park Nature Trail:     The rail head is located at the back of the park, near the entrance for brush drop off.  Click here for a short video

Davidson's Mill Pond Park:   Take a walk at Davidson's Mill Pond Park in South Brunswick. This Park is part of the Middlesex County Park System.  Click here for a short video

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. 

The Farrington Lake Trail connects Davidson’s Mill Pond Park and Ireland Brook Conservation Area.  The trail meanders 1.1 miles along the banks of the Lawrence Brook and the shoreline of Farrington Lake, revealing spectacular views of the lake and unique rock formations found no where else in the county.  Great blue herons, belted kingfishers, and great egrets are commons sights along the trail.  
There are 2 trail heads - South Brunswick Trail head (Ireland Brook Park) and East Brunswick Trail Head (note:  some maps list this as North Brunswick)
