This is a beautiful park in North Arlington. There are many activities planned year round for all the members of the family. There are many hiking and biking trails and is a great way to get back to nature, you never know what interesting animal or bird you may see!

I have been going to River Legacy Park for 21 years & it is my most favorite place to spend time with my husband & 3 children who have all grown up going there for the last 18 years. We have enjoyed countless bike rides, walks, picnics, barbecues etc.... The memories we have made there are irreplaceable. It is a beautiful place & I always feel I have stepped out of the city & into the woods when I am there. My youngest daughter also has enjoyed the Living Science Center since she was 3 years old & began Nature School there. She is now 7 years old & still attends Nature Club throughout the school year & the summer camps, which are awesome. She has received a great "nature" education. I truly just can't say enough good things about the Living Science Center & the park!

River Legacy Park is literally in my back yard. My husband and I love walking through the park. It's a tremendously beautiful place of peace in an otherwise hectic world!
