Mendham Borough Park has a toddler friendly fenced-in playground ideal for play dates and family picnics. Nicely shaded.
Mountain & Park Ave is where the field is (Playground is accessible by following directions below, there is a playground for the Nursery Co-op, you have to pass that one!!)
From I-287 take exit 36 which is the CR510/Laffayette Ave exit. Stay straight to go under the train trestle toward Morris Ave. Turn right at Morris and go through the light and at top of the hill make a right onto East Park Pl and then a left at the next light onto N Park Pl. Take a right onto Washington St which is CR 510/NJ 24. Continue for almost 7 miles until you see the Mendham Firehouse on your right. Turn right and go up the hill and behind the firehouse to find the playground ahead on your left. The facility extends beyond the playground to include sports facilities.
