Perfect circle, almost clocks in at 1 mile circumference. Several benches, partially shaded, calm water, dam with water drop. Only complaint is limited parking. Good place for a walk or a run for exercise.

The Watchung lake has a cascading dam which holds the water and a park below the dam. There is a walking loop around the lake which is about a mile.Great place to walk around and appreciate the nature.

Watchung Lake in Watchung is a beautiful place to take a walk and relax. The Lake is very clean and people friendly.

Can't think of a better place to relax and enjoy nature. Benches for sitting and a path for jogging or walking.

The view is very pretty no matter what the season. Just watch out for the geese and their droppings.

Great little lake for walking (almost exactly a mile around) that breaks up the monotony of doing so with views of the lake, and surrounding residences one of which is a privately owned mansion. There is another body of water just steps from this one...More

Fortunate to live in town and be able to walk with my husband here after dinner and enjoy the evenings. Not all areas are flat and sidewalks variable, so you do need to be careful. Great place to run into friends out enjoying as well.
