Historical and natural sights, such as a pine plantation, deserted village, and scenic gorge, abound in this suburban oasis, Union County’s largest park.
Wedged between the developed suburbs of Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, Scotch Plains, Springfield, and Summit, the Watchung Reservation helps make those towns special places to live. Many a local child grew up exploring, on foot or bike, the marked and unmarked paths on the reservation’s 2,045 acres.
