To the families of Cresskill with kids:

We have a five-year-old son, and moving to Cresskill in July. I am wondering what activities or local attractions (parks, groups, etc.) are available in the area to allow for my son to become acquainted with new friends and other local children. Any advice?

Thanks in advance for the tips!

Hi, I've lived In Cresskill for 11 years, my husband grew up here & have 3 girls ages 9, 6 & 3. Cresskill has a ton of programs for the kids, besides the great schools it's what I love best about living here! In the summer there is the summer recreation program (summer camp in July) it's through the recreation center on 3rd street for kids entering 1st grade & up. The program is great! There is also the pool, that is a great way for you all to meet people. They have swim team & free swim lessons.(my kids do both). The recreation center has tons of classes/activities for the kids in arts & crafts, sports etc. all pretty cheap. There is the 4th of july "carnival" water slides, pony rides etc, get tickets free @ the borough hall. Go to the town website & click recreation, there is a pdf download of all rhe summer events/activities. Hope this helps! If u have any more questions u can email me @

there's also a carnival called the UNICO carnival every spring. Summer Rec in the summer for kids is a must. Kids go to the swimming pool alot. There are about 5 playgrounds- one on 12th street, one next to the pool, one by Merrit Elementary School, a "big kid" one in front of Bryan School, and a preschooler one also with Bryan School. There's a movie theatre near by in Tenafly.
