Palisades Amusement Park was located in Bergen County, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from New York City. It was situated atop the New Jersey Palisades. We could get there in about 15 minutes from our house. The park was one of the most visited amusement parks in the country but was closed in 1971 to be replaced by condos that were able to offer residents a gorgeous view of the New York skyline & Hudson River. Still, Palisades Park will be remembered fondly by all.
