3 Reasons my Family Loves Van Saun Park

 

  • We just love that we can spend the whole day here. With 146 acres this park offers a variety of activities sure to please the entire family. Between playing on one of the playgrounds, having a picnic, riding the train and taking a twirl on the carousel we can spend hours at Van Saun.

 

  • Location, location, location! This park is located close to several major highways and popular malls.  It is in the heart of Bergen County and a short ride from just about any of the surrounding towns. We love to meet up with friends and family at this park as it is relatively easy to get here.

 

  • My kids just love the multiple play areas. The equipment is multi-aged, spread out and large in size.  They love to run from area to area and never seem to get bored.  The ADA accessible playground is a great addition especially for families that have children with special needs or in our case friends who can now join in the  fun.
