Verona Park is a jewel in the crown of the Essex County Parks System. This 54.3 acre park, bordered by Lakeside Ave. and Bloomfield Ave., was designed by the Olmsted brothers and boasts paddle boating, fishing, bocce ball courts, a playground, tennis courts, winter sledding, a 1.2 mile fitness course and the most spectacular variety of flowering trees for miles around.

There is also lakeside dining at the Verona Boathouse during the spring and summer, and a host of community events all year round from concerts to the popular craft fair to 5 k runs and other charity fundraisers.
