Cedar Grove Park, Cedar Grove, NJ

Around 50 Little Falls Road, Cedar Grove, NJ. 
This has 2 playgrounds separated by a soccer field, so they are pretty far apart, but a parking lot is adjacent to the soccer field.  The first playground (first half of pictures) was for school-age children and had swings slides and a climbing/more like rocky stairs structure.  It was pretty quiet the day we went.  The second playground is more for preschool.  There was restrooms nearby which was nice, and then we saw deer..How much more can I talk about playgrounds, a pretty dry subject indeed…  Well I find the pictures give you the best idea, so here you go… (I’m feeling a bit uninspired today, sorry Cedar Grove, help me out and add some user reviews, residents!)

Community Playground of Montville, NJ

Change Bridge Road, Montville, NJ.  Thanks to my friend Allison Barbag for this recommendation.  Very nice huge playground, our kids had a lot of fun today there.  This is the biggest one I’ve seen in NJ yet.  Great for pre-school and school-age kids.  If you like slides, this has a giant one! Check out the review from “The Playground Guide” below:

130 Changebridge Rd

From Route 287 North take exit 47 Montville/Lincoln Park. Make a left onto Route 202. Continue on Route 202 to 1st traffic light. Make a right at this light onto Changebridge Rd. The Park is approximaly a mile and ¼ on your left.

An incredibly diverse, clean, fun, well designed playground with four distinct play areas and something for everyone. It’s amusement park like. It could be the largest playground in all of Morris County. It has a beautiful farm theme and tons of variety in the equipment. Tall tube slides are super-adventurous and there’s great climbing for older kids, an imaginative play area for smaller kids and hand-cap accessible swings that can hold wheelchairs. This playground is definitely a top 10! Bathrooms next to the playground would make it perfect!

Thanks also to Sara for adding the wheelchair swing pic and spinny thing we missed that when we went
