Dinosaur theme park moving to new location in Bergen County

LEONIA - A dinosaur theme park in New Jersey that was in danger of becoming extinct has found a new home.

Field Station: Dinosaurs has signed a deal with Bergen County to move to Overpeck County Park, which covers more than 805 acres and has major sections in Teaneck, Leonia, Ridgefield Park and Palisades Park.

The prehistoric theme park opened in 2012.

But it left Secaucus last year after Hudson County officials informed them that construction would be starting there on a new building for a high school.

The park had already renewed its lease. So the dinosaurs were packed up and remained in storage until the park could find a new home.

The park's temporary site will be in Leonia. But it eventually will move to the Teaneck section.
