Brookdale Park

Part of the Essex County Parks system, Brookdale Park has 2 great playgrounds, as well as a great loop of approximately 1 ¾ mile. Not only does it span 121 acres, but the playgrounds are definitely a hit with the kids, with one pre-school age playground and the other for kids 5+.

There are swings for the older kids as well as climbing equipment and a bathroom nearby.

Make a Day of It: Downtown Montclair has a lot to offer, including nearby restaurants and tons of shops. We talked to a mom in the area who raved about Aunt Jean's Toys & Treats, located on 12 North Willow Street.
