Field Station: Dinosaur is moving from Secaucus to the Overpeck County Park in Teaneck

April 4,2016
the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Teaneck NJ, Field Station: Dinosaurs, the prehistoric theme park that brought T Rex to exit 15X of the New Jersey Turnpike,  is moving from Secaucus to the Overpeck County Park in Bergen County .The dinosaur park on the brink of extinction it self had to pack up and move out of it’s Secaucus home after Hudson County decided it need the land for another project .

The 20 or so acres of woods and mountain trails in Hudson County are being re-purposed, which has forced the park to find a new location. Field Station,had a three-year lease with Hudson County, and opened in 2012 in Laurel Hill Park. The park ran for three seasons and was open to the general public starting in May and closing in the fall .

12821590 1075363532523964 8978693549467904503 n

Hudson County officials informed park staff that construction would be starting on a new building for High Tech High School at the same location, despite the park having renewed its lease for two more years. Field Station packed up the roaring robotic dinosaurs, created from steel and foam, and placed them in storage until the park could find a new spot.

Field Station asks you to sign up for their newsletter and be the first to know where the dinosaurs are headed for 2016 and beyond. Newsletter subscribers will receive a special coupon code for an exclusive pre-season discount! Sign up at www.FieldStationDinosaurs.com.
