The Passaic County Park System consists of a spectacular collection of public parks, open spaces, and recreational areas —  many having been designed and conceptualized by the legendary Olmsted Brothers Firm. Residents and visitors alike can play golf on the Preakness Valley Golf Course, hike the most exciting of trails at Apshawa Preserve and Tranquility Ridge, explore the legendary Morris Canal Greenway, jog along a pathway in the manicured Goffle Brook Park, and so much more.


Guests are encouraged to visit Passaic County parks, participate in outdoor activities, engage in community events, and to request permits for their favorite facilities.
