Home >Hedden County Park
Named after the Hedden family of Dover who donated the original 40 acres in 1963, Hedden Park was dedicated on October 4, 1970. Through its land acquisition program, the Park Commission has increased the size of Hedden Park to 380 acres. Included in the park are 2 ballfields, picnic sites, hiking trails and a group picnic shelter.
Hedden Park's lake is six acres with a fishing pier, a boat house, a deck area, and an outdoor fireplace for ice skaters.
The park has 2 distinct sections: the lake section, accessible from Ford Street and Reservoir Avenue, and the Concord Road section which includes a multi-purpose field, picnic area, hiking trails, and a restroom facility. Trails along the Jackson and Wallace brooks, which are trout production streams and view Indian Falls, are popular with hikers.
In June, 1998 Saturn of Denville, Mount Olive, and Livingston donated a third playground to the Morris County Park Commission. The "Saturn Playground" is a wonderful combination of slides, rings and climbing structures. It is located near the group picnic shelter.
