Take a walk around the Watchung Lake! This 1 mile scenic walk has views of three beautiful fountains and a cascading waterfall. Meander down to the 9/11 Memorial which overlooks the Village Green and was sculpted to replicate the areas rock formations. There are many memorial benches along the way and two Gazebos strategically placed along the pathways with views of the lake, fountains and falls.
