MacGregor Preserve consists of 159.51 mostly wooded acres on Old Chester-Gladstone Road. The property was purchased in January 2001 for $3.2 million from the Estate of Samuel C. MacGregor. This property was purchased through the combination of a Morris County Open Space Trust Fund grant, a grant from the State Green Acres Program and money from the Township Open Space Trust Fund.

The MacGregor Preserve is adjacent to the Township’s existing Tiger Brook Park and together, the two parks provide 430 acres of contiguous open space. Peapack Brook, a major tributary of the North Branch of the Raritan River and a state classified Trout Production stream flows through the park.

Hiking trails connect the MacGregor Preserve with Tiger Brook Park. The entrance to the property is located on Old Chester-Gladstone Road, just south of Route 206 where a gravel parking area for 8 cars is provided.
