Lake Parsippany is a private lake community quietly nestled in the center of Parsippany-Troy Hills, in Morris County. This 168 acre lake and grounds is fully funded and maintained by membership fees and member volunteers. We receive no State, County or Township funding. Our Community welcomes everyone to join our association, regardless of where you live and enjoy a piece of the lake.
The Lake Parsippany Property Owners Association members maintain and manage all operations of the lake throughout the year. The membership preserves this beautiful natural resource through its fees and through active volunteer participation in the community.
Membership is required to participate in its many activities that include fishing in a trout stocked lake, sailing, swimming, sunbathing, competitive sports, concerts, dances, family fun nights and much more.
Membership in the Association is not limited to Lake Parsippany Property Owners. Renters and residents from outside of the Lake Parsippany area are also welcome to join. The Association is a not for profit organization.
In addition to all of the activities available with membership, the Association also supports various Clubs and Committees.
Lake Parsippany is home of the New Jersey Dragon Boat Club. Dotting of the eye is an annual ritual of the New Jersey Dragon Boat Club during the open house day. 2017 marks the 17th year in which the NJ Dragon Boat Club has been at Lake Parsippany.
NJ’s 1st dragon boat club, started with a recreational crew, added a competitive crew and then a junior crew since their first visit to the Boat House.
This ancient Chinese Eye Dotting ceremony, “The Awakening of The Dragons,” features local and visiting dignitaries painting red dots on the eyes of the ceremonial dragon boat figure heads to officially “wake” them up.
