    Wanaque Reserve is great for convenience. The location is fantastic and condo living is the only thing I know. I've always lived in a no-maintenance type of property so for this stage of my life, being retired now, I wanted something easy to take care of but with all the perks. It's great having the fitness center and the pool so close to home and the social activities keep everyone here very involved with the community. It's a very nice place to live.
