Phelps Park

Phelps Park, Teaneck, NJ

near intersection of Wilson Avenue and Cumberland Avenue, Teaneck, NJ.  We park right on Wilson Avenue and walk over to the park.

We always love visiting our friend in Teaneck, and found out that it is one of the few towns we know of that have a sprinkler fountain  in most of their parks.  Phelps Park is the best from what we’ve heard in town.  They have a Parks person stationed at the sprinklers from 10AM till 4ish (need to verify with the town).

Plenty of swings and great place to grill or have a playdate!
