With my kids in school and an increasingly active baby, it has been a challenge to leave our surrounding area. I’m even having a tough time just keeping up with posting new places that are on email or my camera. This is the reason I am forever grateful for guest pictures and posts for areas that have been geographically difficult for me to visit. Thanks contributors!
These beautiful photos were taken by my close friend and business partner, in Sayah Media, Dina.
More info on this park from http://www.teaneck.org/virtualvillage/parks/votee/
“Votee Park, the largest completely developed park in Teaneck Township, is located in the north central portion of the municipality. The park covers the entire area between Queen Anne Road and Palisade Avenue from Colonial Court to Court Street. As the most extensively developed and heavily used recreation site in Teaneck, facilities include an in-ground swimming pool, a children’s wading pool, rest rooms, an amphitheater, three soccer fields (two lighted), five baseball fields (two lighted with field houses and refreshment stands), a double handball court, four tennis courts (lighted), and a lighted, enclosed, two court basketball facility. Playground equipment consists of a merry-go-round, tot swings, horse swings, sandbox, two see-saws, a mini-gym climbing structure and spring toys. Two paved walking paths are in the park. The largest, measures 1.16 miles and surrounds the entire park. The smaller, measuring 1/3 mile surrounds the two lighted soccer fields. Two designated picnic areas are located in the park equipped with burners and permanent picnic tables.”
also from a commenter about Small Safe Enclosed Quiet Playgrounds (SSEQ):
“I don’t know any that are fully enclosed AND safe AND quiet, however I can say that the playground at Votee Park in Teaneck is enclosed and has special swings for kids with physical disabilities. Depending on he time of day and the season it can be quiet or loud â€“ It’s definitely quite active, but my child doesn’t tend to get over-stimulated there and I find it one of the safer and better-designed parks we’ve been to. Memorial Park in Dumont has a generally pretty quiet playground, and is safe, but not fenced.”
