Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ Will Open as a Public Park

Nytimes.com’s “An Oasis, Once Gilded, Now Greened” highlights Duke Farms, a 2,740-acre estate in Hillsborough, N.J., which had a $45 million face-lift and will open as a public park on May 19th. The farm belonged to Doris Duke, a heiress once dubbed  “the richest girl in the world,”

With a $45 million face-lift that includes a fence to keep out the deer that had overrun the property, Duke Farms has become a haven for wildlife, including 30 endangered species and 230 varieties of birds, the bald eagle and the great blue heron among them.

Opening day is May 19th. Activities include a five-kilometer fun run at 8:30 a.m. and a bike ride at 11:30 a.m. Registration required for both. Hot air balloons (tethered to the ground), from 12:30 to 3 p.m., will give visitors a chance to see the farm from several hundred feet up.
