  • Such a cute little fairy trail that's great for toddlers. So beautiful, especially near the creek/river. The zoo is also perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.
  • I went to the zoo attached to the park. It was amazing my 2 year old loved the animals. There is also a lmhuge kids park not 5 minutes away walking and an above ground activity center. Parking is plenty but when they are busy it takes a while to get through the traffic. Little shuttle takes you between the back lots and the park the restaurant and the zoo.
  • Great hiking trails. FYI, on 5/9/2017 found in S. Orange section of Reservation a set of keys (including distinctive Batman key) with small, flat LED light on lanyard, adjacent to Orange trail along ridge near intersection with Orange/White trail, above stream flowing southward towards S. Orange Ave. and Rahway River Hung lanyard on small branch on north side of trail.
  • It offers short and easy trails. Good for nearby local residents. Restrooms must be built near the parking areas.
  • This is one of the best things about moving to this area from NYC! Having a huge, beautiful park with many trails and things to see, so close to home, is just fantastic.
