Fortunately, beautiful Wyckoff, New Jersey, with its sprawling gardens and exceptional schools, has infinite events and fun things for your family to enjoy. Check out just a few of our favorite activities in Wyckoff below.
The Wyckoff Rose Garden
This is a favorite attraction among locals, and for very good reason. The Wyckoff Rose Garden is a beautiful, natural display of roses begging you to stroll through and behold. There’s a lakeside trail for a peaceful walk, a communal green space perfect for a picnic, and, of course, a bevy of gorgeous blooms as a prime backdrop for family photos. If ever you need a break from the everyday hustle and bustle of life, this is a lovely retreat.
For some of the tastiest fresh fruits, veggies, and baked goods around, check out Abma’s Farm. The family-owned and -operated farm has been around for nearly a century, and in addition to offering delicious, homemade eats, it has plenty of events throughout the year your family can take advantage of. There’s a winter break camp for kids, a pizza-making class, and even a monthly children’s book club, so there’s pretty much no reason not to check it out.
