PARTNER with the Essex County park system, community groups and allied organizations in support of the above objectives.
Brookdale Park, designed by the renowned Olmsted Brothers firm, which also created New York's Central Park, is one of Essex County's largest parks. With 78 acres in Bloomfield and 43 acres in Montclair, Brookdale is a serene oasis in an otherwise densely populated area.
A rose garden featuring more than 100 species of roses, trails for walking and running, lush groves and extensive lawns, playgrounds, sports fields, track facilities, tennis courts, an archery range and stadium grandstand are some of the attractions that make Brookdale Park a magnet for nature lovers, families, and physical fitness enthusiasts for miles around.
