We are excited to start updating njplaygrounds with our collaborators- here are our most recent collaborators- click on the right + (plus) sign to expand and then see their contributions to our site via their articles, photos and/or videos:

If you aren’t familiar with njplaygrounds’ history, it started 2008ish and then took a hiatus as both creators (Sheila and Amy) had kids that outgrew the traditional playgrounds and had different interests. In 2023, it made its way back to Sheila and it was time to figure out how to re-invent a dusty website now with her partner at Sayah Media, Dina. As we figure out social media, websites in 2023, and collaborating with playground enthusiasts, and influencers, we will be introducing new content and reconfiguring so to make sure we are offering something unique and different for our audience!

For now here is what has been worked on most recently!

Van Saun Park, Paramus, NJ

Winter Update 2024- We love this park, and will be adding updates as we get them! Did you know that until February they will have “ice bumper cars”? Van Saun County Park transforms the parking lot next to carousel into a Winter Wonderland every winter season. You can see where Winter Wonderland is setup with the image below (brown dome shape building is carousel) – part of parking area turns into ice rink and winter fun. I am pretty sure that’s the location, except google maps doesn’t show the nice pavers put in.
