About Porter Park

A beautiful green oasis intersected by Harrison Avenue, Orange Road, and Porter Place, Porter Park is the emerald gem of Montclair's Third Ward. 


Loved by neighbors for walking, daydreaming, and light recreation, Porter Park was a gift to the Township of Montclair, granted by the Porter family in 1905.  Originally a highly planned park with a beautiful assortment of flowering shrubs, a series of a bit of misfortune and a lack of investment in the space has caused this gem to lose some of its luster. 


Friends of Porter Park was created by neighbors of the park to give this green oasis a voice and much-needed attention.  We welcome engagement from all interested parties - individuals and businesses, alike.  Contact us here.
