This park is across the street from Union County College which makes parking tight, at times. The park has a 2 mile walking trail with exercise stations along the way. It is charming and often has fairs or charity walks or 4th of July fireworks.

Well kept, quiet, yet bustling small community park. I ride the bike paths often, bathrooms are open & clean, water is reflective and gatherings at the picnic tables or community event make it even more fun.

Parking is always an issue because it is limited. And there are a lot of people, but it's well kept and I feel safe walking through. There is a lot of goose poop but that's everywhere in NJ parks, corporate parks, etc.

Its a great place to (workout) run, walk your dog, watch fireworks, watch a 5K race, have a picnic, take your grandkids to play, watch a softball game, or sit quietly and read a book.

I'm not a fan of this park because it's extremely crowded and with that many people there should be police present. There's a small bridge that you're supposed to walk your bike over, yet hordes of people run over the bridge, and run with their...More

Walking trails all around the lakes make for a nice stroll. Always something happening on a weekend to check out.

Great park if you have kids who love playgrounds or enjoy walking in nature or want run or walk a great, long loop. Easy to access with ample parking. A county treasure our politicians dedicated many years ago.

I walk once a week twice around the path takes me about an hour. I love meeting people as I go around. They are friendly. There are parents with babies in strollers, bikers, walkers and runners. All are friendly and courteous.

No, you can park on one of the side lots on the boulevard anytime. You'll also be able to walk the park whenever. They just have a gate closing the play area.

The main path is a little over 2 miles, but there are at least two smaller paths that you can take.
