Summit, NJ

GPS:  Summit Ave. & Broad St.

Mabie is a great spot to stop if you are walking around downtown Summit.  Partly fenced to the busy street, this playground is a favorite in warmer weather for its location, partial shade and picnic tables. A hot dog vendor is usually stationed by the park, but there are other options nearby.  No sandbox, but the bocce courts attract young sand enthusiasts. 

Make a Day of It:  There isn’t any shortage of restaurants in Summit, but on a warm spring day Applegate Farms on Beechwood Ave. is a perfect stop.  The train station is a block away where you can see the tops of trains pass below you via large glass windows.
