About Verona: “Although Verona is a primarily residential community, it has factories and commercial areas. It is a wonderful place to raise a family or start or relocate a business. Originally, Verona was a part of Newark, then later a part of Caldwell Township. The Borough of Verona was incorporated in 1907.” Located in the valley between the First and Second Watchung Mountains, Verona has four elementary schools, a middle school and high school as well as a free public library. Verona was listed as one of “25 Great Towns” by NJ Monthly Magazine.” Verona Chamber of Commerce

 

 

Verona Park

“One of the most striking features of the town is Verona Park, part of the Essex County Park system. The 54 acre park was designed by the Olmsted Brothers and features twin lakes and a picturesque bridge that is a favorite location for wedding photographers during the summer months.  There is a modernized expanded boathouse that is adjacent to the 13-acre lake is used for boating and fishing. Craft shows and concerts are special events held in the park. At sunrise, joggers and runners make their way through the 1.2 mile course around the lakes. There are also tennis courts and several playgrounds.” Verona Chamber of Commerce.

Full History:

“The Verona Park is a park located in Verona, as part of the Essex County park system.

Verona Park is a 54.32-acre park with a lake bordered by Lakeside and Bloomfield Avenues in the southern part of Verona. This is the fifth largest park within the system.

Once an old swamp, the lake was first formed in 1814 when Doctor Gone (or Bohn) dammed the Peckman River for a grist mill. Later this lake surrounded by weeping willow trees and winding paths became an ideal location for family activities. Even before it became a county park, the public—including residents outside Verona—flocked there by way of the Bloomfield Avenue trolley, to bathe and picnic and enjoy some commercial amusements.

The landscape plans prepared by the Olmsted Brothers were approved the same year Verona Park was acquired. Actual development did not start until several years later due to court proceedings concerning condemnation of some of the land. There was no inconvenience to the public during the delay because the park was already being used for boating, bathing, skating, picnics, and band concerts.

Historic Profile

Verona Park is a 54.32-acre, picturesque park with a beautiful lake bordered by Lakeside and Bloomfield Avenues in the southern part of Verona. This is the fifth largest park within the system.

Once an old swamp, the lake was first formed in 1814 when Doctor Gone (or Bohn) dammed the Peckman River for a grist mill. Later this beautiful lake surrounded by weeping willow trees and winding paths became an ideal location for family activities. Even before it became a county park, the public—including residents outside Verona-flocked there by way of the Bloomfield Avenue trolley, to bathe and picnic and enjoy some commercial amusements.

The first land acquisitions for the park were made in 1920. Demand for acquisition of this desirable tract had been increasing for some time, but action was delayed due to economic conditions caused by the war. To acquire part of this land owned by the Erie Railroad Company, an agreement was made allowing the RR to retain a right-of-way across the park by means of a bridge. Sketches showed a bridge with a series of high arches that spanned the lake and roadway. Fortunately, this bridge never materialized. Instead, the existing arched pedestrian bridge over the lake presents a quaint architectural highlight.

The landscape plans prepared by the Olmsted Brothers were approved the same year Verona Park was acquired. Actual development did not start until several years later due to court proceedings concerning condemnation of some of the land. There was no inconvenience to the public during the delay because the park was already being used for boating, bathing, skating, picnics, and band concerts.”
