Skating and Sleigh Riding Guidelines
Montclair Township' Recreation Department announced that Edgemont Pond will be open for ice skating when weather and ice conditions permit.
Flags will be posted at Edgemont Park to let the public know if the ice is safe to skate on. A red flag means the ice is unsafe to skate on. A green flag indicates skating is permitted.
After a large snowfall and the street has been plowed, Upper Mountain Avenue will be closed between Windsor Place and Mt. Hebron Road to allow for supervised sleigh riding at Mountainside Park.
The park will be open for sleigh riding on weekends, holidays and school snow days between noon and 4 p.m.
