Hedden County Park
The 389.4-2 acre facility is a public park consisting of a 2.8-acre easement along Jackson Brook and a six-acre Hedden Pond. Named after the Hedden family in 1963, the park was dedicated in 1970 October 4th. The Hedden family of Dover donated the original 40 acres in 1963.
JFK Memorial Commons Park
The facility hosts several events, including Christmas tree lighting every year, a Halloween parade, an Easter egg hunt, and summer concerts. It consists of the town's Gazebo and a children's play park. It was named in 1963 after the assassination of President JF Kennedy.
In 1902, the Water Commission bought the facility and built wells to supply water into the growing community. The facility consists of accessible banks of Rockaway River, a picnic area, and a baseball field. Most people visit the facility, especially during summer, for swimming in the Rockaway River.
