Bread Lock Park, located in New Village is open to the public. A short section of the Morris Canal tow path and canal prism has been cleared and offers a lovely (albeit short) walk. The lock tenders house foundation give visitors a glimpse into the life of people who worked on the canal. While still buried, the remains of the lock itself speak to the historical significance of the site. A picnic grove, built as an Boy Scout of America Eagle project is located next to the Learning Center.

Bread Lock Park offers a perimeter walking and nature trail, a "par course" or exercise trail. Historical signage explains the significance of the site.

The park is open from dawn to dusk every day. The Warren County Historical Learning Center is open on the second Sunday of the month from 1:00 - 4:00 PM.

The Learning Center house detailed models of Lock 7 West ("The Bread Lock"), the inclined plane in Bowerstown, NJ, Shippen Manor, and The Oxford Furnace. Volunteers will be on hand to interpret the models and answer your questions. The Learning Center also houses an extensive collection of books on Warren County History and microfilm records of original Morris Canal engineering and financial documents.
