Saddle River County Park encompasses a huge area and this section happens to be a favorite of one of our fans, Victoria.Â She was kind enough to send us some photos and she describes below why she likes this park:
- Not nearly as crowded as the Ridgewood duck pond which is nearby.
- Parking lot is close by.
- Small enough playground that you can’t lose your kids
- 2 steering wheels that my son loves
- baby swings
- walking path that isn’t to long
- Picnic tables close to the playground so you could actually picnic near and have your kids play..
Below is the description from “The Playground Guide”
Saddle River County Park is located on East Prospect St, in Glen Rock.Â It is in a great location right next to the pond in the center of the park. There are two separate structures for each age group and an independent climbing section with repellers and monkey bars. There is no barrier between the playground and the water so you have to keep an eye on the little ones.
