WHAT TO DO
Johnson Park, a 473-acre county-run site next to the river, has tennis courts and playing fields; wide paths for jogging and bicycling; a modest petting zoo; and a gravel track used by harness racers. Opposite the park is the Cornelius Low House, a stone mansion built in 1741 that is now home to the Middlesex County Museum.
The township library has a cafe and an area recently designed for teenagers. Piscataway is also said to have a lot of activities for its older residents, in addition to extensive sports programs, like tennis lessons for adults, and youth baseball and softball leagues.
The system has four elementary schools, for kindergarten through third grade; two intermediate schools for fourth and fifth grades; three middle schools for Grades 6 through 8; and the high school, for Grades 9 through 12.
About 2,100 students are enrolled at Piscataway High School.
Piscataway is a short drive from the train station in New Brunswick that provides New Jersey Transit and Amtrak service to Pennsylvania Station in New York, 30 to 35 miles away.
