In recent times there has been an enhanced emphasis on and discovery of exciting spots for outdoor adventure. Year-round, green spaces can offer a safe outlet for socializing, exercising, learning about nature, and focusing on both your physical and mental health. Having the region’s largest and most highly rated parks right by The Winston at Lyndhurst apartments with spacious floor plan options and incredible amenities means offering boundless outdoor potential to our residents.
Here are just a few of the parks just minutes from our community:
Branch Brook Park
Less than 20 minutes from The Winston, Branch Brook Park is the nation’s first county park, dating to the late 1800s, and that historic feel continues through today. On your visit to the park, take in historic sculptures and monuments, and you can even take a guide cell phone tour to learn about the history as you explore the expansive park. Branch Brook Lake runs through the area, offering a picture-perfect backdrop for a run or picnic. The park, however, is perhaps best known for its 4,000 cherry blossom trees—the largest collection in the nation—which come to life each April.
Richard W. DeKorte Park
Ride your bike or put on your walking shoes and head less than two miles to this park. While visitors can enjoy views of the New York City skyline, the ample green space will make you feel like you’re far from the city. The park features 3.5 miles of trails, winding waterways, marshes, and wetlands. The park is a popular site for bird watchers, as hundreds of different types of birds have been spotted here. Bring along the binoculars and plan a day of immersing yourself in nature!
Liberty State Park
Our Lyndhurst apartments near parks like Liberty State Park allow residents to have the best of both worlds: close proximity to expansive outdoor areas brimming with peace and tranquility, yet equally close commutes to some of the nation’s most bustling cities.
