Where to Go for Outdoor Winter Fun
MORRISTOWN, NJ – Stop wishing it was summer and get up, get out, and discover the many winter activities waiting for you right here in Morris County. You don’t have to travel far to enjoy winter fun like snowshoeing, ice skating, cross country skiing, and sledding.

Discover a new, healthy hobby with friends and family by welcoming the snow with a day out on the sled at Tourne County Park’s various hills in Denville. Cross country ski through the beautiful trails at Loantaka Brook Reservation in Morris Township. Lace up your skates and glide across the ice at the flooded, in-line skating rink at Central Park of Morris County in Parsippany. Director of Recreation, Reynold Fauci stated, ‘There’s nothing more invigorating then sledding down the Doe Meadow hill at Lewis Morris County Park. The snow flies past your face, and your heart races while you toboggan down one of our largest sledding hills. You have to be a real daredevil to attempt it from the top!’

If indoors is more your style, head over to Mennen Sports Arena and check out one of their three ice surfaces. Don’t have ice skates? No problem, rent a pair of ours, both hockey and figure skates are available. So quit hibernating and embrace one of New Jersey’s most cherished seasons. There’s so much excitement and adventure waiting for you, don’t miss out! For more information, including a full list of outdoor recreational sites and activities, please visit
