Exploring Van Saun Park (Bergen County Kids and Nature and Photography)

If you are the kind of parent who will show up to meet your photographer with your family dressed in everyday clothes, with remnants of breakfast on your kids’ faces, then wear and nurse your baby, while allowing your other kids to run around and explore in the mud…

I like you. We’re a good match, and I would love to photograph your family! 🙂

If you live in Bergen County and you have kids, you’ve probably been to Van Saun Park. You might know it for the zoo, train, carousel, and huge playground. In these photographs is my favorite park of Van Saun park, hidden away from the weekend crowds.

In an area with an overwhelming number of highways and malls, which I avoid at all costs, I love spending time enjoying the natural spaces we also have. If you aren’t visiting our parks and nature centers and hiking and bike trails, I hope you will start! If you don’t know where to go, ask me!

And next time you go to Van Saun, instead of (or in addition to) the zoo and playground, take a walk around the pond, and check out Washington Spring Garden. Enjoy! 🙂
