“Not as inviting!”

South Mountain Reservation
Ranked #3 of 15 things to do in West Orange
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 October 2012

The Reservation was always a very safe, family oriented environment. Now, there are people coming who do not maintain the same level of care for outdoor spaces and I miss the "good ole' days."

South Mountain Reservation is filled with wonderful trails, nice places to relax, and great places to play sports. We held a family reunion barbeque here. My family really enjoyed the experience.

Well marked primary and secondary paths. Plenty of picnic areas; waterfall; observation points with great views of New York City. Over 2000 acres to explore. Forage for berries, mushrooms, salad greens too!! Stop at doggy parks. Something to do on every boundary - zoo, ice skating, miniature golf, theater,restaurants.......

Great paths to run and exercise. Paved and easy, some places don't let cars on so it is nice. Dog park is really good, have one for small dogs & one for large dogs.

After years of renovation this is a wonderful zoo, especially for the under 10 kids. Was there last week with my one year old grandchild. The exhibits were well done, there was lots of fun stuff for her to see. She loved her ride on the carousel We now have a family membership and look forward to our next visit.
