Yantacaw Brook Park is the municipal park located in Montclair, New Jersey.  The park consists of approximately 11.5 acres (47,000 m2) of land.  The park contains a small pond and a stream that feeds into it.  The pond is surrounded by trees and low hills.  There are paths and benches throughout the park.  The Yantacaw Brook feeds the pond and then continues into the Third River through Bloomfield, Nutley, and Belleville where it finally meets the Passaic River.  Both Yantacaw Brook and the Third River were referred to by the Lenni-Lenape people as Yantokah or Yantacaw.
