Lemon Creek/Sandy Brook

Sandy Brook originates at the South Shore Golf Course, flows south to Porzio’s Pond at Woodrow Road, and joins the main stream of Lemon Creek in Bloomingdale Park. On the northern side of the SIRT tracks, Lemon Creek becomes a major freshwater wetland system, with marsh on either side. The creek becomes tidal at Bayview Avenue, with salt marsh plants replacing freshwater ones. This final stretch runs through Lemon Creek Park and empties into Raritan Bay.
