The Loop – Union County Parks & Playgrounds




theloop33 Reasons my Family Loves The Loop 


  • The Loop is tucked away in the Watchung Reservation which is a great place to spend a day! With Trailside Nature Center a short walk away, lots of trails and things to discover at the Reservation you can expect to spend a long time here.


  • The playground structures are new, plastic and offer a lot of opportunity to climb and crawl. The designers put some thought into making the structures with a nature theme, to better blend into the surroundings.


  • Too hot to play long?  There’s a large flower there that appears to sprinkle water on you when you push a button!  We were there in late May and it wasn’t turned on yet, but we’ll be back in the summer and update this page.  There’s a shaded gazebo between the two playground areas also, and a sign with prices for ice cream indicates that there’s a seasonal snack stand as well.
