  Lake Surprise Dam in the Watchung Reservation

Union County is home to 36 parks that encompass nearly 6,200 acres. The parks cross the gamut from small neighborhood parks to the nearly 2,200-acre Watchung Reservation, the crown jewel of the Parks system and home to Trailside Nature & Science Center, Watchung Stable and The Deserted Village of Feltville.

Whether you’re seeking a leisurely stroll, a nature lover out birding or looking for a hike in the mountains or along a lazy river, it’s all out there in your backyard, including a host of multi-use trails that are also open to bicyclists. The multi-use trails are paved and are also suitable for strollers, wheelchairs and other equipment used to assist those with disabilities.

Enjoy. For additional information, feel free to contact Parks, 908-527-4900 or parksinfo@ucnj.org.
