8 Things to Do with Your Kids in Paramus, NJ

There's no shortage of fun in Paramus!

Located in the heart of Bergen County, Paramus, NJ, is jam-packed full of family-friendly activities. Not sure where to start? Here is our list of activities to help you get started.


70 Eisenhower Drive, Paramus, NJ

 BounceU is an indoor inflatable playground featuring slides, bouncy houses, and other fun activities for kids and parents to enjoy. Fun activities are followed up by most Open Bounce sessions—kids can participate in Donut Decorating Bounce with their parents, where they can make, decorate, and, of course, eat their finished product. Not into sweets? Healthy Snack Bounce and Bubbles Fun Bounce sessions are also available. Check out BounceU’s online calendar for a full list of Open Bounce activities. Pre-registration strongly encouraged.

Monster Mini Golf

49 E. Midland Ave., Paramus, NJ

Take this outdoor activity indoors at  Monster Mini Golf with glow-in-the-dark and neon lights, comical artwork, and—beware—creepy-crawly monsters at every turn! This 18-hole course is open to all ages and features the course’s own radio station, W.I.R.D. (pronounced “weird”). But MMG is not just for mini-golfers; it’s for aspiring secret ninjas, too! Practice your skills by racing against the clock with MMG’s Laser Maze. Feeling a little nostalgic? MMG also has an arcade filled with classics such as Pac Man and Air Hockey.

Van Saun Park

216 Forest Ave., Paramus, NJ

Lions and monkeys and owls, oh my! Operated by the Bergen County Parks Department, Van Saun Park is more than just a 146-acre playground. The park features a zoological area filled with animals native to North and South America (so no tigers or bears, sorry!), a Miniature Train Ride, and the Millennium Carousel. History junkies may also enjoy the historic Washington Spring, the area where General George Washington led his Continental Army through during the Revolutionary War. Most activities at Van Saun Park are free, but some require small fees; check out their website for more details.    

Westfield Garden State Plaza

1 Garden State Plaza, Paramus, NJ

Rainy day? Who said you can’t have family fun-time indoors? Aside from various retail stores for both kids and parents, Westfield Garden State Plaza also has a variety of restaurants to choose from as well as an AMC Movie Theater.

Saddle River County Park

760 Saddle River Road, Paramus, NJ

Saddle River County Park consists of five different park areas connected by a 6-mile multi-use bicycle and walking trail that stretches across five different cities within Bergen County including Paramus. Pavilions, picnic areas, playgrounds, and tennis courts can be found along the path. Be sure to check out one of the three wild duck ponds and the Dunkerhook Park waterfall. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the historic Easton Tower as well!

iFly Indoor Skydiving

211 E. Route 4, Paramus, NJ

Scared of the real deal? That’s okay. iFly Indoor Skydiving, which just opened, is here to give you the full skydiving experience minus the plane and parachute. Certified flight instructors assist in pre-flight training and gearing up and are with you during your entire flight experience.

Paramus Municipal Swimming Pool

530 Van Binsberger Blvd., Paramus, NJ

You know those hot, sticky summer days when all you want to do is lounge around and do nothing? Well, the Paramus Municipal Swimming Pool is the perfect place to take a dip and cool off! There are not just one, but three different pools including a kid’s pool and lap pool. There are also two diving boards and a water slide. Full snack bar service and lockers are available.

With eight batting cages, 12 bowling lanes, laser maze, and board game tables, there is bound to be at least one activity for everyone in the family to enjoy at Humdingers!
