These great parks, Maxim Glen and Modick Parks, are located  adjacent to each other on the corner of Lakeside Boulevard and Hopatchung Road in Hopatcong, NJ. With a gorgeous view of Lake Hopatcong and two great playgrounds, you can’t go wrong by spending the day at these parks.

3 Reasons my Family Loves Maxim Glen and Modick Parks


  • Play areas for all ages! Modick Park offers 2 playgrounds so the whole family can enjoy a day out. The area designated for little ones is fenced in which is great for children who love to run EVERYWHERE!  The playground for older children was recently installed and offers fun for kids ages 5+ (although some younger children can play with careful supervision as the slides are very steep). Lastly, this park has 2 full size basketball courts for teenagers and adults.


  • Wonderful walking path! Maxim Glen park offers a beautiful walking path that is great for exercising, taking a leisurely walk and pushing strollers. Four times around is equivalent to one mile.


  • Maxim Glen and Modick Parks are erfect for family pictures!  Both parks offer beautiful scenery in all seasons. Young children in their communion outfits, teenagers getting ready for the prom and proud families on graduation day can all be seen taking memorable photos. I was lucky enough to take amazing family and maternity pictures during the beautiful fall season.
