Goffle Brook Park is situated in the heart of Hawthorne. The 103-acre Olmsted designed public space features manicured meadows, sprawling greenways, paved walkways, athletic fields, playgrounds, a picturesque duck pond, and a dog run. Goffle Brook Park is especially frequented in the winter, offering the ideal landscape for snow-day sledding. Visitors can stop by the Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House, located within the park. Goffle Brook Park also holds a historic past. During the American Revolution, General Marquis de Lafayette and his troops were stationed along Goffle Brook.
