Looking for a fun outdoor activity in the Newark, NJ, area? We recommend that you check out Essex County’s Verona Park, located about 20 minutes from Value Van and Car Rental in Newark. This 54-acre park was once a swamp area until the Peckman River was damned off in 1814 to create the lake that visitors now enjoy. Verona Park is now regularly enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
The lake provides many fun activities, including boating, fishing, and swimming during the warmer months and ice skating when temperatures turn cool. You can enjoy a leisurely stroll throughout the park, pack a picnic lunch and eat beside the lake, or bring your racket for a game of tennis. If you don’t want to bring your lunch, you can also grab something at the Boat House Burger Shack. Families can enjoy a playground and a children’s garden, which is a peaceful spot for people of all ages to enjoy.
Verona Park is also known as a great place to host a live event. From weddings to outdoor concerts, Verona Park is a great venue for all types of activities. It even offers on-site dining at the Boathouse. Plus, the 13-acre lake makes a beautiful outdoor backdrop.
We hope you’ll take some time to enjoy the lovely Verona Park. If you’re not a NJ native and need transportation while visiting the Newark area, then contact Value Van at (973) 792-0343.
