Park Description:

The Hackensack River Greenway through Teaneck offers wildlife viewing of birds, mammals, reptiles and fish.  The Hackensack River is on the Eastern Flyway and is a stopping point for egrets, swans, herons, cormorants, and loons, among others

The Greenway is owned by the Township of Teaneck and maintained by the Friends of the Hackensack River Greenway through Teaneck.

Trails Overview:

 A 3.5-mile trail parallels the east bank of the Hackensack River from its southern terminus at Terhune Park north to Brett Park. A few hundred feet away is a Revolutionary War site -- Historic New Bridge Landing, also the location of the Steuben House.   Much of the pathway is along the river, and Indian Pond at Andreas Park is a particularly beautiful spot for viewing wading birds.  But several sections have yet to be completed requiring the use of local streets.  Trail maps are at several entry points along River Road.   Also, click on the Contact Information link below and follow the trail "Map" link.

Directions:

From Route 4 East, take the River Road/Teaneck/Bogota/New Milford exit on right.  Follow the signs for River Road at the bottom of the ramp.  Turn left for the section of the Greenway heading north, and right for its southern section.  To begin a hike at Andreas Park travel 0.5-mile north on River Road from the Route 4 off-ramp to Grenville Avenue and turn left.  Numerous other entrances are shown on the trail map available at the web site under Contact Information.  See also the Map tab above for location.

Public Transportation:  NJ Transit Bus Line No. 178 "Hackensack" from the George Washington Bridge Terminal stops at West Englewood Avenue and River Road. Walk south one block to Grenville Avenue at Andreas Park.  Other bus stops are along the Greenway.  Consult the trail map for key entrances in conjunction with NJ Transit bus routes
