The Essex county Regatta playground in West Orange is now open and it’s amazing! Located next to the paddle boat and picnic area in the South Mountain Recreation Complex, the nautical-themed park includes two ships to play on, swings, fossils in climbable cliffs, a dragonfly seesaw, a bouncy bridge, musical instruments and more. One of our favorite parts: Forget uncomfortable park benches, parents can lounge in the colorful Adirondack chairs while they watch the kids play!
