Explore 146 Acres of Outdoor Space at the Van Saun County Park

May 4, 2016 4:03 pm

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.

How to Use Color to Brighten Your Home at Windsor at Mariners

April 27, 2016 4:03 pm

It’s not uncommon for renters to have restrictions when it comes to making changes to the look of the unit; however, there are a number of other ways to brighten up your space without the use of paint. Here are just a few!

  1. Add a pop of color in the kitchen by mixing and matching brightly hued chairs with a neutral table. Paint your existing set in a bright yellow, rich navy blue, or trendy turquoise.
  2. Set out vases of fresh flowers throughout your home for an all-natural burst of color. Think daisies, hydrangeas, and tulips in equally colorful vases.
  3. Top your bed and sofa with a variety of mismatched throw pillows in complementary hues. While they don’t all have to match completely, choosing one color scheme will help you to keep things looking stylish.
  4. Add artwork from local thrift stores and home decor shops housed in painted frames. You can also try a “dipped” look by painting the entire bottom half of the painting and frame in one bright shade.
  5. Add removable wallpaper that you can easily peel off when your lease is up. Use a floral or striped style on one accent wall for a magazine-worthy look.
