This post is historical below:
Eagle Rock Avenue and Ridgedale Avenue, East Hanover, NJ. there are 2 parking lots, one on Eagle Rock I believe is closer to the playground and it is on Fifth Avenue by the Rinaldi Center, however i do not see that street published on mapquest or google maps. If you park far away, prepare for a walk, and look for the tennis courts, it is a bit hidden. Great playground with restrooms nearby. Swings, slides, trees, and benches with age 2-5 and 5-10 playgrounds, and some structures that could resemble store fronts.. Friendly people were around this playground, and my son had a great time playing with his new friends.
From Amy’s The Playground Guide Listings:
