Ditch the Toll, Stay Local for NJ’s Premier Destination for Holiday Family Fun



(PARAMUS, NJ) – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco and the Bergen County Board of Commissioners are excited to announce that Bergen County’s Winter Wonderland opens this Friday, November 24th.

Back for its 8th season, Winter Wonderland attracts over 30,000 visitors each year and promotes year-round access to the Bergen County Parks System with outdoor ice skating, games, a beer and wine garden, ice bumper cars, and, new to this year, weekly Bergen County-based live entertainment. From the giant 30-foot centerpiece Christmas Tree to the festive decorations throughout, Winter Wonderland has become a cherished holiday tradition, bringing together our 70 communities here in Bergen County.
