Very sweet & lovely couple Arjay and Angela are getting marry in summer, 2016. For their prewedding shoot, they picked Watchug reservation park. Honestly, I never been to Watchug reservation that deep in the wood. it was early in the morning of Memorial day weekend. Me and my friend Carmelo Soberano were up and ready with our heavy duty cameras and cup of coffees lol. There was not a single person around when we got at the park. We had lots of fun!
Watchung Reservation is the largest par in Union County, New Jersey, United States. It is bounded by the city of Summit, the borough of Mountainside, and the townships of Berkeley Heights, Scotch Plains, andSpringfield. The reservation consists mainly of the upper valley of Blue Brook, between the ridges of First Watchung Mountain and Second Watchung Mountain. A dam near the headwaters of the creek creates Lake Surprise.
While there are playgrounds, golf courses, stables, and a museum within the reservation, much of the 1,945 acre (7.8 km2) parcel is forested, and the reservation is managed for the preservation of its natural resources.
The most popular recreational activities in the reservation are hiking and horseback riding on its many trails. The county-owned Watchung Stables are located on a large cleared area in the eastern end of the park, and at the center is the Trailside area, a large park with picnic tables and playground equipment.
