Overpeck County Park is 811 acres across the towns of Leonia, Palisades Park, Ridgefield Park and Teaneck along Overpeck Creek in northern New Jersey. The Ridgefield Park section was once a garbage dump that became a biohazard and was closed in 1975.

The county filled the area in with topsoil and plantings to restore the area and add to the park that had been created in the 1950s. The expanded park opened in 2010.
