Need a place to unwind and escape the rigors of everyday life? Head to Van Saun County Park in Paramus! The park spans 146 acres and is popular among residents of all ages.
Van Saun County Park is well liked among families with young children due to an oversized playground and convenient location. There’s a kid-friendly train ride and ponies for riding, as well as a carousel. One of the park's most popular attractions, however, is the Bergen County Zoological Park, which hosts a small collection of animals on display. There’s a small entry fee for the zoo and some of the other activities, but there are also traditional free activities, like hiking and fishing. The park also offers complimentary use of public barbecue grills and picnic tables.
Van Saun County Park is open every day until 4 p.m., and activities rotate based on weather (go sledding in the winter months!). If you’re a Bergen County resident, some activity fees are discounted.
