I was so excited to see what an amazing park Verona Park is. I visited after one of my readers contacted me and let me know about this gem of a park. Verona Park is well-located in Essex County in Verona, NJ. The park consists of 54.32 acres of land including a lake with a boathouse where paddle boat rentals, including swan shaped boats, are offered seasonally, a part of the 36 mile Lenape Trail, which connects 18 parks, beautiful gardens, tennis courts, picnic tables and benches in many areas of the park and the most awesome playground!
The playground looks new and has many exciting and unique elements. Firstly, it is situated in a gated area with soft rubber mats lining the ground which make it easy to walk on and less injuries while the children play. A big part of the playground has an awning which keeps the children safe from the strong sun.
Within the playground are two large climbing structure with really large slides protruding from one structure. There are There are rock climbing blocks, Rope challenges up a small hill on the side and slides to get down the hill. The mist spray in the playground was fun to run into during our visit on a hot summer afternoon. There are many swings and benches strategically placed around the park for adults to sit on while watching the children.
The park was not just for little children. It was definitely a favorite-I highly recommend it.
