Things to Do

As one of Morris County's most scenic areas, Harding Township features a wide range of natural attractions. Without a commercial downtown, a large area of the township is protected open space, and there’s also a wildlife refuge. Bayne Park is one of the many places to enjoy the great outdoors, where you can enjoy a relaxing picnic under a shade tree. The park also has a sizeable pond, which is the site of an annual spring fishing tournament. In the winter, the pond becomes a picturesque setting for ice skating and hockey games. 

Located just five miles away in Morris Township is the 883-acre Loantaka Brook Reservation. The park has 10 miles of trails with lush, flat terrain perfect for cycling, jogging, and skating. Seaton Hackney Stables offers trail rides on horseback through the park's natural scenery. The park is one of the busiest since it offers something for everyone. 

Many locals also participate in the town's Old Country Auction and Sale each September. Items for sale are donated by residents, with proceeds helping to support the local volunteer organizations. 

Each November, the Harding Township Historical Society hosts an annual two-day Antique Show. The event showcases various pieces of antique art, furniture, and jewelry.
