One of the most picturesque playgrounds in Essex County is Verona Park. The playground has spongy flooring and is located across the road from a beautiful lake. The lakehouse nearby has snacks as well as pedal boat rentals.
There are both structures for pre-schoolers as well as older kids. There is a nice path to walk, run or bike alongside the lake. This park is perfect for a group playdate as well as a great place to admire the small quaint garden that is right next to the playground.
