Central Park of Morris CountyWith the help of Lakeland Cross Country and the maintenance staff at Lewis Morris County Park, a 5k cross country trail was created. The course, with its beautiful views, features soft rolling hills with a mixture of grass, gravel, and natural trail surfaces, enjoyable for runners and watchers alike.

Central Park of Morris County, dedicated in the summer of 2008, has been designed for passive and active recreation. Once part of Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, it was purchased from the State of New Jersey. It is our first fully accessible outdoor athletic facility.
