Darlington County Park

7/11: The Splash Zone water obstacle course at Darlington County Park is CLOSED for maintenance until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience. The Lower Lake is still open for swimming and the park is still open for people to come enjoy its other features. 

With 127 acres, Darlington County Park is Bergen County's summertime jewel. With a multitude of opportunities for passive and active recreation, which includes a swimming lake in the summer, Darlington County Park is a great place to spend time with family and friends or enjoy some solo time out in nature.
