Teaneck - 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.”

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.

Though the conservatory 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!

Perfect place to visit with young children. Easy walking, small bridges, a harmony garden, and lots of little nooks to discover.
