originates from Cedar Brook Pond (a 4 1/2 acre pond east of Rossmoor which in turn
is fed by a 7 1/2 acre pond to the north), and flows through
the trees and willows of the south-east section of the community.
(The blue arrow and line in the map to the left trace the brook's position and
direction of flow)
As a point
of interest, upon
leaving the southern part of Rossmoor the brook flows first into Cranbury
Brook supplying a lake in the Town of Cranbury. From there,
its water goes into the Millstone River (a major tributary
of the Raritan
River) which runs parallel to the historic Delaware
and Raritan Canal. Finally by way of the Raritan
River, the water of Cedar Brook (running downhill
from 140 feet above sea level) ultimately
reaches the Atlantic Ocean!
