Lake Parsippany

All About Lake Parsippany

Beautiful Lake Parsippany is a private lake quietly nestled in the center of Parsippany-Troy Hills, in Morris County, NJ. This 168 acre lake and grounds offers well maintained swimming beaches and lots of places to simply sit and enjoy the scenery.

In the early 1930s, The New York Daily Mirror, part of the Mirror Holding Corp., bought a huge tract of pasture and farmland in Parsippany. They dug out 159 acres and erected a dam that formed Lake Parsippany, which became the headwaters for Eastman’s Brook. The Mirror Holding Corp. made the 7,916 lots surrounding the lake available to anyone agreeing to subscribe to the Daily Mirror for six months. Lots measured 20 by 100 feet and were offered for $98.50 each. A minimum of two lots had to be bought in order to build a cabin. By 1933 a sufficient number of properties had been sold.

The Mirror Holding Corp. on October 29 1933 held a meeting at Lake Parsippany. About fifteen hundred people attended it. An incorporated organization of lot owners was formed. The Mirror Holding Corp. turned over the property to the Lake Parsippany Property Association.

The community grew as increasing numbers of city residents retreated from the summer heat. Membership is not limited to Lake Parsippany Property Owners. Renters and residents from outside of the Lake Parsippany area are welcome to join. The Association is a non-profit organization. A Clubhouse facility is available for rental by members and non-members for business meetings, private functions, and community events.

Lake Parsippany offers many activities of enjoyment. There is something for everyone. Beaches offer sunning and relaxation, and are complete with large protected swim areas, lifeguard stations, and snack bars. Boating offers numerous activities on our breezy lake including sailboating, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboats and dragon boats. Fishing is a popular activity since the lake is stocked with plenty of fish to reel in. There are also sports teams and numerous clubs which also support lake upkeep, and several committees that enhance the benefits offered by membership to the lake.

Cedar Lake

Cedar Lake was originally a small, natural, spring-fed body of water called Cranberry Lake and, later, Silver Lake. In its early days, the lake was known for its abundant silver moss, used to pack ice which was harvested, sold and shipped to nearby metropolitan areas. The lake was eventually dammed and its size increased to improve the ice harvesting. In 1906, Cedar Lake was purchased by Mr. M. W. Raynes and George B. Wright under their company Cedar Lake Park, Inc.
