The Middlesex County Department of Parks and Recreation provides recreational and cultural activities for the general public throughout the year. Extensive facilities for summer sports, winter sports, theater and concert programs offer opportunities for enjoyment to County residents. The park system consists of 18 county parks encompassing 6,631 acres. Thirteen of these parks contain active recreational facilities and five others are conservation areas or are being held for future recreational development. The County is in the process of acquiring 7,000 acres of open space through the Open Space Trust Fund, and an active farmland preservation program has preserved 2,500 acres. The Middlesex County Improvement Authority operates three golfing facilities: The 36 hole Tamarack Golf Course in East Brunswick, the Meadows at Middlesex in Plainsboro, and the Raritan Landing Golf Course in Piscataway.
