There is plenty to do for the whole family at Van Saun County Park which is also home to the Bergen County Zoological Park. The park offers six picnic areas, three pavilions, a baseball and softball field, tennis courts, train rides, pony rides, a bike path, a carousel and a pond where fishing is permitted.
