To protect, maintain, and promote the recreational, historical, aesthetic, and environmental qualities of the Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park and its environs, and to assist and to support regional, state, local, and private enterprise efforts which contribute to this goal.
The D&R Canal Watch 5K Fun Run which starts at Washington Crossing State Park (Titusville, NJ), has become an annual event, attracting as many as 250 runners. Funds raised by the run have made possible a series of purchases for the Park that have included flat files for maps, a VCR, tractor trailer, saw, computer program and benches. In recent years we have concentrated on interpretive signs for each lock and spillway. A Guide to the D&R Canal State Park will be published by the Watch in the near future in conjunction with a commercial publisher.
