Memorial Park, Westfield, NJ

713 Cumberland Street, Westfield, NJ.  Thanks to kids guide for the information regarding special needs: This park was built by Greg Rayn, Jr. in 2004 for his Boy Scout Eagle project. 

It is wheelchair-accessible with rubber surfacing with 4 special needs swings.  Not as popular as Mindowaskin Park, this quiet little park is adjacent to tennis courts, and across from Westfield’s pool.  No bathrooms close by, unless you try the pool, but I didn’t try. 

Kids loved playing store here, and picnic benches were near for a quiet lunch.

Mindowaskin Park Westfield, NJ

N. Euclid Avenue, Westfield, NJ located close to town center.  I would definitely go to Mindowaskin Park  for meeting with friends, downtown Westfield is perfect for strolling and getting a bite to eat.  There’s a great little toy store in the area, Thinka dinka right on Broad Street.  Beautiful playground nearby a brook, kept very clean and great for both toddlers and school-age kids.  To support the park, contact “Friends of Mindowaskin Park” organization.

Slides: Various sizes both for toddlers and older kids
Swings: bucket swings and adult swings
Climbing: Many things to climb on/through
Walking Paths: Beautiful picturesque walking loop w/ gazebo great for lunch
Parking: Lot adjacent to playground
Seesaw: Bouncers

Make A Day of It: Westfield is one of the cutest downtowns we have ever been to. Not only do they have shops, and restaurants, but they also have a movie theater not too far from the park.
