Overview

Park Ridge

Established in 1894, Park Ridge is one of the Bergen County boroughs that share the Pascack Valley, where northern New Jersey borders New York State. This is a relaxed, upscale community that maintains a small-town atmosphere.

Park Ridge residents enjoy convenient access to New York City by rail, and to the Garden State Parkway and the New York Thruway, as well as plenty of nearby shopping and a diverse dining scene. Parks large and small are all around, offering hiking and biking trails, streams and lakes, sports fields, picnic areas, and the simple pleasures of fresh air and greenery.

What’s in the neighborhood?

Unlike many other North Jersey towns, Park Ridge has a pastoral history rather than a direct Revolutionary War connection. Housing a museum of early Dutch farming equipment and methods, the Wortendyke Barn dates from around 1770, and hosts musical performances in the summer. The 1872 Park Ridge train station is still in use, and the Pascack Historical Society occupies a former chapel built in 1873.

About halfway between the Palisades on the Jersey bank of the Hudson and the expansive Ramapo Valley County Reservation just west of I-287, Park Ridge is close to many green spaces to enjoy. Silver Lake is right in town, while Atkins Glen, Woodcliff Lake Reservoir, and Wood Dale County Park are just south.
