Washington Rock State Park

Washington Rock State Park located in the Green Brook Township is one of the oldest State Parks in New Jersey. The location of the park made it a really valuable lookout point during the American Revolution for General George Washington in June of 1777 when the British army under General William Howe was moving toward Westfield. From the vantage point of this natural rock outcropping, General Washington had a panoramic view of the valley and was able to instruct his troops to circle behind Howe’s troops and cut off their retreat.
