Life-sized dinosaurs roar again in N.J. county park.

As you enter Field Station: Dinosaurs, you’re greeted by 32 life-sized, moving, realistic dinosaurs. The Dinosaurs make low closed-mouthed throaty whooshes of air sounds.

According to nj.com, this wild scientific expedition situated in beautiful Overpeck Park, located in Leonia, is an experience that brings you back in time with the sights and sounds from when dinosaurs roamed the land.

And it’s back with some new socially distant precautions.

“Field Station: Dinosaurs moved all of our shows and activities outdoors and we’re following the state and county’s guideline for public parks,” said Executive Producer, Guy Gsell. “To ensure that all our visitors can have a safe experience, we’ve given the entire park a facelift that includes wider trails and open air tents.”

According to WBTV, “after the pandemic paused summer programs last year, this is the first time since 2019 that the mobile book bus is rolling into summer camps and community programs to deliver books to elementary students.

“It’s been a great community effort to try to enhance literacy when students are typically not in the school building,” said Superintendent Andrew Houlihan.

The mobile book bus ends on July 29.
