Overpeck County Park

199 Challenger Road, Ridgefield Park, NJ. Overpeck County Park was just redone, and has been the buzz of our facebook fan page for over a month now. Not only does it have climbing nets galore, but it has so many spinners, and a rubbery chip/mulch landing. I made the mistake of first going to the Leonia section of Overpeck that has a playground as well, but this one is clearly the BIG ONE.

Also a great gazebo to get together when it isn’t full. Bathrooms are in a facility by the soccer field.

My kids loved it here, I haven’t seen so much equipment, it really was hard dragging them back home. Nearby this park is the AMC Loews Theater, so if you want to catch a movie and then go for a park playdate, it’s ideal!


From their website:

“The park, which is ADA accessible, includes the following amenities:

  • Children’s playground
  • Five miles of paths for pedestrian and bicycle use
  • Observation deck/ nature overlook
  • Canoe/kayak launch (car top only)
  • Dock
  • 3,000-seat amphitheater
  • 40-acre open field
  • One softball field
  • One baseball field
  • Two artificial turf soccer fields
  • Six tennis courts
  • Three comfort stations
  • Two concession areas

    My 3 yr old and 10 yr old LOVED IT!! Especially the spider net play area- the biggest I have ever seen!! The shakey bridge was fun because it is really high above ground and the multi tube with four paths was great. Very very nice park. Bring refreshments, you will stay a while and not much is around.

    I love walking on the walk ways. I have now walked 4 days in a row. It is safe, beautiful, and a good work out. You see so many beautiful plants, flowers, and animals that before you know it your walk has ended. Thank you everyone who has made this beautiful Park possible.
