About Lewis Morris County Park

Named for Lewis Morris, the first Governor of the State of New Jersey, this Park was the first to be opened in the Morris County Park System in March, 1958. The original 350 acres have grown to a total of 1154 acres, which includes a lake recreation area, Parcourse Exercise Circuit, three ballfields, a group camping area and six distinct picnic areas. The newest of these, Deer Run, was officially opened at the Rededication Ceremonies on September 25, 1988. Lewis Morris Park, one of the first parks to benefit from the Interpretive Signage program, is also one of the sites where equestrian trails are designated and implemented.

The County's veterans' memorial is located near the Route 24 entrance to the Park and was dedicated in 1992.

In June 1995 Saturn of Denville, Mount Olive, and Livingston, donated their first playground to the Morris County Park Commission. The playground, "Saturn Playgrounds" is a wonderful combination of slides, rings, and climbing structures. It is located next to Doe Meadow in the center of the park.

Sunrise Lake at the Park now features Wibit! Wibit provides a track where players can race each other in on the water. Wibit kayaks are also available for a relaxing ride or a race with family or friends. Call (973) 267-4351 for more information about Sunrise Lake and the Wibit.

Our Personal Take...

We have not visited this park, but certainly want to. We have only heard good things. And from looking at the online map, it looks like there is a lot to do!


Parking

You will find many parking areas throughout the park. And based on the map their site has provided, almost all the parking lots contain directories / park information.
