BROWN'S POINT PARK
Greenwood Lake, Passaic County, NJ


Directions:

Heading west, it is a right turn off of Greenwood Turnpike in Greenwood Lake.

This is a small park on the southwestern side of Greenwood Lake. It has an odd setup because they set up a game of frisbee golf in the park. This is played like ball golf but uses a flying disc instead. Anyway, they have weird looking mechanical set-ups around the natural areas.

There is a mixture of park, playground, woods, and lakeside.
