“Great job”

Paddle Boating and Picnic Pavilion
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This whole complex in West Orange/Essex County is impressive. It includes a really nice, paved path around the reservoir (well lit, including benches and other seating areas), access to the Turtle Back Zoo, paddle boats, a new playground and more. All nicely designed and well landscaped. A great addition to the area and very popular, based on the attendance seen on a regular basis.

Great 2 mlle walk around the reservoir, especially since they redid it and put all the new landscaping and patchwork in. My wife and I come here often to do a lap after work on weeknights.

It is a zoo on the weekends though, lots of kids everywhere, noisy, and the parking lot is jammed.

The Paddle Boating and Picnic Pavilion on the Orange Reservoir is a great place to have a good time . . . for young or old. There is a paved walking path around the reservoir that is just under 2 miles around. The Picnic Pavillion is large and covered; paddle boats are large and new. They are building a children's playground to the left of the entrance and there is an entrance to Turtle Back Zoo on the walkway. . . . http://turtlebackzoo.com/

Free Parking is located just across from the entrance on Cherry Lane. A traffic light provides safe crossing of Cherry Lane into the park. No entrance fee for the Picnic Pavilion or the walking trail. A reasonable fee is charged for the paddle boats with life jackets required and furnished.
