Historic Warinanco Park, named after a prominent Native American Lanape leader, opened in 1920. Located in Union County on the border of the borough of Roselle and the city of Elizabeth, the 205 acre park packs in numerous amenities for the community. From paddle boat rentals, a brand new splash pad and playgrounds for the children, turf field and running track, beautiful gardens, and plentiful walking paths, there’s an opportunity for everyone to enjoy and play in the park!
Generations of local residents have fond memories of skating in the Warinanco rink which hosts nearly 50,000 visitors per year. The rink, originally built in 1961, was billed as the first public articial ice skating rink in Union County. In 2016 and 2017, the rink underwent an extensive $7 million modernization and renovation that doubled the overall complex space and transformed it into a year-round venue for skating and other activities.
