“The best park I have been to that is very close to where i live”

Van Saun County Park / Bergen County Zoological Park
Ranked #1 of 16 things to do in Paramus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This park is very convenient because it is very close and has a variety of animals and a park where you could walk around and see the animals in their habitat and a park where kids can play and more attractions. A great touristic place!

The location is very nice, you have from tennis court to pony ride and much more, but the zoo lack of initiative, if you go with young children is all you need, train ride easy manageable walk distance to everything, pick-nick area, merry go around....but if you go with older children cam be very disappointing.

We go here during the week all the time - it has a fabulous little train ride that goes all around the park, a giant carousel, ice cream, playground, and pretty good sized zoo. It is clean and bucolic. I know in the summer on the weekends it is extremely crowded - as it is a county park so people come from urban areas to barbeque and hang out.

This easy to reach park is off Forest Avenue in Paramus. The small zoo is fun for little ones and the lake is very pretty. Good place for a walk in Fall, enjoy the leaves. Clean and free, ample parking, too.
