This playground is located next to the West Orange town pool. There is a parking lot next to the pool/playground and another lot nearby. There is also plenty of street parking. There are areas for all ages of children and benches for their parents. There is not much shade though. There park was clean but there was some graffiti on some of the slides. There is a building with bathrooms but the doors were locked when we were there. They are probably open when the pool is open or when there is an event there. There has been a teriffic blues festival the 4th of July weekend.
