Shady Haworth Memorial Park

Thanks Elizabeth L. for sending us this description and great photos!:

“Entrance to Park at corner of Whitman St. and Hoover Way (off Madison Avenue), Haworth, NJ

Great wooden castle playground. Huge. Areas for older and younger kids. Minimal entrances/exits. TONS of shade. Swings, slides, etc.
It’s got pebble ground cover, so I would suggest that kids wear sneakers, rather than sandals, to minimize rocks in the shoes”
