Teaneck Creek Conservancy

20 Puffin Way

The recorded story of the of Teaneck Creek’s wetlands begins in the 1600s, when Lenape Indian leader Sachem Oratam deeded more than 2,000 acres to Dutch colonist Sarah Kiersted. The English Governor Philip Carteret granted a “patent” to Sarah Kiersted, a deed confirming her ownership of land that included the current Conservancy site. At the time Oratam deeded the property to Kiersted, a diverse ecosystem existed there with a wealth of water resources, including, according to the words of the English deed, “woods, pastures, fields, Meadows, Pools, Ponds, Islands, Creeks, Marshes, River.” The water-rich ecosystem contained tributaries to the Hackensack River and provided habitat that the deed describes as conducive to “Hawking, Hunting fowling, fishing.”

Lovely walk through the trails. We did not complete the entire walk but we made our way through most of it. The handy maps at the start were useful since it was out first time visiting. It made for a fun day and the kids also had fun makizng their way through the trails. Plants, trees, and wildlife all in our backyard. The Labyrinth was very quiet and tranquil. The Harmony Garden was a really excellent find. Lots of fun to make music with the various items. I look forward to returning here again.

Though the conservancy has not been well maintained in the past few years, it is still a beautiful place to walk through the woods and enjoy nature. You'll find some beautiful artwork along the way-make sure to stop in the Harmony Garden, you will be glad you did!

Dog friendly. Beautiful, unique, artistic landscaping. Can be heavy with ticks in late spring. Lots of bunnies by the concrete tubes.

Well maintained and clean park. There are birdhouses, bird feeders, and plants specifically planted for birds and butterflies. They have a couple paths that are not very extensive. All in all, I will likely return.
