New Water Feature Planned for Teaneck Park

Teaneck has a well-developed park system including 25 parks; however there are few wa­ter recreational facilities in the parks. Several of the parks in town have wading pools, but they are not in good condition and underused, ex­plained Bernard Pearson, a member of the Te­aneck Park, Playground and Recreation Advi­sory Board.

The “Make-A-Splash” committee is look­ing to upgrade the current wading pools in Teaneck parks and construct an all-inclusive, water park that would feature sprinklers. The sprinklers would both sprinkle water from be­low and gently shower it from above from a variety of fun water spray elements and struc­tures.

The new outdoor garden and play area will “make a splash” with children of all ages and ca­pabilities. This aquatic recreational area will be secure and is designed to seamlessly meet the needs of all children, including those who are handicapped. It is anticipated that when com­pleted, it will be a great, free, summer-fun activ­ity for town residents.

The town does not have the resources nec­essary to fully fund this endeavor. Fundraising has begun to support this project. The path leading to the water park will include bricks en­graved with the names of those who support the Make-A-Splash project in Teaneck. Corpo­rate sponsorship for the benches and water features is available.

The mission of the Make-A-Splash commit­tee is to improve the recreational facilities in the town of Teaneck. Its vision is to provide a free wa­ter play area in the town parks for all residents. We need help to make that mission and vision a reality. To join the committee or inquire about brick donation or corporate sponsorship please contact [email protected].
