Is This Essex County? A short walk around the reservoir.  by Barbara Dexter

I decided to take an after work and check out the recently opened pathway that circles the Orange reservoir.  There is ample parking across from the paddle boat entrance on Cherry Lane. The path is about 2.5 miles in length. The scenery is beautiful. This is a good, relaxing, and well lit walk.  It is close to the Turtleback Zoo and mini golf.  If you don’t want to bring a snack, there is waterfront dining available. Well the waterfront dining will cost you.
