Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange just keeps getting better. It seems that every time I take my family, there’s a new exhibit and added fun. The Dinosaur Prehistoric Playground is a great addition.
Located next to the Essex Farm Petting Zoo, the really cool playground has super cushy rubberized ground, dinosaur fossil climb-ons and slides, and a really cool archaeological fossil dig section, complete with two diggers. The playground equipment is for younger kids, but we did have some fun in the dig area.
