Things to Do
The adjoined green spaces of Demarest Nature Center and Wakelee Field provide another scenic spot to view local wildlife. Wakelee Field’s amenities also include tennis courts and a baseball field. This green space also hosts Demarest annual craft show at Oktoberfest, with handicraft vendors, German food and music, and Korean delicacies.
Set within a sprawling 18-acre nature preserve, Davies Arboretum’s shrubs and flowering trees cover seven acres. Local schools help organize the Demarest 5k, a family-friendly run that is a highlight of Demarest’s annual community events. The Alpine Country Club at Demarest’s southeast offers exceptional amenities to its members, including an 18-hole A.W. Tillinghast championship golf course, five Har-Tru tennis courts, adult and children’s swimming pools, and several upscale dining spaces.
