The Lenni Lenape Native Americans  used Watchung, meaning “high hills”.  The Stony Brook flows through the borough to the Watchung Lake.  It follows through a gorge in the first Watchung mountain, over the Wetumpka Falls, towards Green Brook.  No wonder this is a wonder of hills, water, nature, and home to many animals.  Deer and ducks live among the beautiful homes and properties in this  Somerset County town.  Ball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, and playgrounds can be found at the parks in town.  Also a fitness circuit and chess and checker game tables at the Best Lake Picnic Grove.  The Garden Club and Arts Center brings a unique and many cultural activities to this great town, too.
