HACKENSACK, N.J. – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco announces that the Bergen County Parks Department will open a regulation NHL-size ice-skating rink and a smaller synthetic children’s practice rink this holiday season in Van Saun County Park. The Rink @ Winter Wonderland will offer a local outdoor amusement for residents to enjoy with their families throughout the winter.
“I understand how hard it has been for parents and families to find fun activities throughout this public health crisis. Despite the County not being able to host our annual Winter Wonderland Festival, I am glad that we will still be able to offer families a slice of safe, socially distant holiday fun this winter” said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco.
