“Essex County Kip’s Castle Park is a unique historical treasure that gives us a glimpse of our County’s unique past. We invite you to visit this holiday season and learn about the history of the Tiffany Windows that are found throughout the Castle,” DiVincenzo said.

Admission is $8 and includes coffee, hot chocolate and cookies. Registration is required and can be done by calling 973-433-7469.

Space is limited and is on a first come, first served basis. Visitors should meet at the front door of the Castle building for the beginning of the tour. Please note that not all areas of the tour are handicapped accessible. Essex County preserved the Castle and 11-acres of property in 2007 using grants from the New Jersey Green Acres Program and the Essex County Recreation and Open Space Trust Fund.

Since the 30-room medieval-style castle, carriage house and 11-acre property were added as the 18th park in the historic Essex County Park System, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs has hosted a variety of free community events at the site. In addition, the Castle is the headquarters for the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
