Watsessing Park, located just steps away from the front door of this unbelievable location, was designed in 1899 and originally consisted of ten acres that were donated by the city to the Park Commission. It has since grown to 69.67 acres that stretch from East Orange to the city of Bloomfield, and boasts three playgrounds, several high quality ball fields and basketball courts, a bandstand, lawn bowling facility, dog park, senior citizen recreation center, and water access at Toney’s Brook and Second River. The park has recently undergone considerable renovations and improvements very recently, costing Essex County more than $1.4 million, and resulting in a popular destination drawing a large population right past your front door!

Renovations of the park include:

  • Installation of synthetic imitation grass on soccer and lacrosse fields, replacing previous fields of natural grass that were in poor condition
  • Aesthetic improvements such as wrought iron fencing, streetscape, and entrance beautification
