Degnan Park was originally known as Vincent’s Pond. It was officially renamed Fairmount Memorial Park on May 3, 1958. It was subsequently renamed again in honor of Bernard M. Degnan. Degnan was a longtime West Orange public servant who served as West Orange Mayor from 1938 to 1951.

Operated by the West Orange Recreation Department, Degnan Park is located at 650 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange, N.J.  

Degnan Park has a kiddie playground, 5 tennis courts with lights, a softball field with lights, and a basketball court.

Vincent's Pond is nestled in the heart of the park and features a fishing dock.  No boating or other water sports are permitted.

Degnan Park is also the home of the Katz Community Center and is immediately adjacent to the West Orange High School complex.
