If you’ve been meaning to visit Field Station: Dinosaurs and haven’t made it over there yet, you need to make it there by September 7th before they close. We visited last weekend because we were in that boat, too. Always meant to and never got around to it.
The theme park was built on county land and was never intended to be permanent so when the Hudson County didn’t renew the organization’s lease, it shouldn’t have been a big surprise. The county had always been straight forward with them that they would probably eventually need the land to build a new High Tech High School there. The school is a county magnet school and is currently outgrowing its home in North Bergen. Field Station: Dinosaurs was just always hoping that that day would come much later than it did.
So, on Saturday morning we packed up our nieces and met some friends at the park for a few hours of walking through history.
There are 32 life-sized dinosaurs to see as you make your way around the park. They are animatronic so they move their heads, wave their tails and look pretty life-like. They even roar!
Walking around and looking at dinosaurs isn’t the only thing to do, either. At every turn, there’s a station with something for visitors to read or participate in.
We colored and built little dinosaurs out of toy blocks.
We learned about dinos specifically from New Jersey.
We learned about what dinosaurs eat, in a fun way.
And, we learned about each dinosaur in the park from these stations.
Our nieces and their friend Nick, who’s a dinosaur expert, all had fun and so did the adults! This is one park that you won’t be bored in. Head over to Secaucus before it’s too late.
