Zabriskie Pond Park is located in the center of Wyckoff on Franklin and Clinton Avenues between Wyckoff and Maple Avenues. It is a six-acre parcel donated to the Township that includes woods, a pond and grassy knolls. It is located across from the Zabriskie House, an example of Dutch heritage in Early Colonial America. Recently, the wooden covered bridge was replaced at the Franklin Avenue end. The pond is a favorite location for young Wyckoff anglers and the location for the Wyckoff Environmental Commission's annual fishing derby.
The Larkin House Park is a five-acre parcel located at 380 Godwin Avenue, which was donated to the Township of Wyckoff in 1999. The Larkin House has been modified for use as an adult meeting room facility and meeting place for the Wyckoff Senior Citizens Club.
The grounds, in accordance with Mrs. Helen Larkin's wishes, have been left in their natural state to maintain the pristine beauty of the property except for the parking area which was meandered between trees and large bushes. The property consists of a meadow, trees, shrubs, gardens, a grape arbor and a courtyard.
