The City of Middletown, working with The Trust for Public Land, has opened up its 1,250-acre watershed for public access and has developed plans to turn it into a vibrant community park. Just minutes from downtown Middletown, visitors can experience a nearby wilderness as they walk, run, or bike on nearly nine miles of woods roads and trails. Visitors take-in stunning views of Monhagen Reservoir, Highland Reservoir, and Shawangunk Reservoir, which have provided clean drinking water to local residents since the 1860s. This forested watershed includes century-old stands of white pines that create a shady and peaceful retreat. Visitors may see deer, foxes, or maybe even a black bear.
