Field Station: Dinosaurs are on the move – headed to Bergen County
Field Station: Dinosaurs, the dinosaur park that has drawn children, parents, teachers and students to Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus for the last three years, will reopen on May 28 at Overpeck County Park in Leonia. The new space will serve as a temporary stomping ground for the dinosaurs as the park builds a permanent home in another section of the park in Teaneck.
In 2017 or 2018, the park will move to a larger area – up to 30 acres of space – near Teaneck Creek and the Fort Lee Road entrance to the Overpeck in Teaneck. Right now, the spot is partially inhabited by a long paved path bordered by reeds, trees, brush and garbage. This path will become the “promenade” area of the future park and form just one corner of the attraction, which will include a parking area near Degraw Avenue and a bridge across Teaneck Creek.
We can’t wait!
