The Hidden Sanctuary That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered New Jersey’s Best Kept Secret

I love New Jersey’s state parks…. So does everyone else. Sometimes this means they can get a little crowded. If you’re looking for a stunning outdoor experience and true serenity, consider a membership at Greenbrook Sanctuary. This private nature sanctuary is located within Palisades Interstate Park and a membership is just $40 per year for an individual or $60 for a family membership. That very reasonable price also comes with some pretty sweet benefits.

These spectacular photos, many by Ken Habermann, just scratch the surface when it comes to the beauty of this preserve. You’ll absolutely want to check it out for yourself. The gorgeous sanctuary is located just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Bergen and Hudson counties and is also easily accessible by bus from New York City. It is the perfect place to find solitude, and with your membership card, car decal and own set of keys, you’re sure to feel like a VIP.
