Victory Gardens, NJ is a reminder of the contributions ordinary people made to defeat the Nazis in World War II. This community was created partly as a government housing project and the people cultivated the land to assist in the war effort. The tiny community largely depends on its larger neighbors for services. No veterinarians operate within the borough's boundaries. However, a network of major roadways keeps Victory Gardens connected to every kind of amenity -- the adjoining towns of Randolph and Dover supply every kind of service a person with a pup could need.
Dover is located on the northwest side of the borough. It is just a short drive to Hedden County Park. This park has 389 acres of recreational space for a person and a canine pal to enjoy. There are plenty of open green spaces, picnic sites, and an easy path to walk along the Jackson Brook. The paved recreational trail gives a person and pup a good stretch outdoors.
For a more ambitious hike, the adjoining township of Randolph has many options. Randolph has built a 16-mile long trail network that connects five of its parks and the Clyde Potts Reservoir Watershed. Be ready to be inspired by the experience of some untouched wilderness along the way.
If you and your pup are ready for some R & R, you may want to check out the Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph. It is only a short five-minute drive from Victory Gardens. This casual restaurant welcomes you and your pup to some outdoor food and drink at one of its patio tables.
