298 Walton Avenue, South Orange, NJ.Â Very close to Maplewood border.Â
Small nice shady park, and red tubes give kids plenty of opportunity to crawl through them.Â A few spaces for parking and it was pretty quiet when we went.Â Less popular than Memorial Park in Maplewood, also targeted for littler kids though you could argue it is a bit more advanced (climbing wise).Â Benches surround the park, so you can adjust as the sun changes position (we were there a bit)
Thanks to the maplewood/south orange message board, I was able to find this little gem.Â
Had a friendly conversation with a nanny there while the boys had fun.Â No bathroom close by from what I saw.Â And the ballfield looks a bit worn.Â See pictures below.
