Filled with pleasant greenery, the Westfield Area has a bountiful supply of outdoor fun. Nestled in the center of Union County, the area is home to some of the county’s 29 parks spanning 6,430 acres.

Choose from Unami Park, Echo Lake and any of Westfield’s other eight parks. Echo Lake Park in Westfield/Mountainside also has a special dog-walking area. Enjoy a day of tromping through the woods at nearby Trailside Center in Watchung Reservation, which comes complete with a beautifully renovated Nature Center. Great days can be spent a short distance away at the Great Swamp Refuge, and another must is the Raptor Trust.

Enjoy a day on the golf course by becoming a member at the Shackamaxon and Echo Lake Country Clubs. Both offer first-rate courses and clubhouses with a variety of membership options. Community pools and sports organizations are ample, providing venues for swimming, basketball, lacrosse, fencing, soccer, baseball, tennis, football, softball, wrestling, ice hockey and more.

Living a healthy, active lifestyle is important for Westfield Area residents and they are able to do so because of these opportunities.
