Excavation of Shared Force Main in Paterson Reveals Serious Problem

Welcome to Woodland Park, N.J.
     West Paterson’s name was changed to the Borough of Woodland Park, effective January 1, 2009. A refer-endum on the Nov. 4, 2008 General Election ballot, calling for the name change, resulted in a majority of the registered voters in favor of changing the name of the borough: 2,136 Yes to 2,111 No. On Dec. 17, the Mayor and Council approved a resolu-tion accepting the election results and officially de-claring Woodland Park as the borough’s new name.
     A second referendum was placed on the Nov. 3, 2009 General Election ballot seeking to have the borough’s name revert back to West Paterson. Voters defeated the question: 2,248 No to 2,216 Yes. Therefore, the borough’s official name will remain Woodland Park.

     In this website, you’ll find information about our municipality’s services and our community.
     Woodland Park is a suburban town of mountain and river edge neighborhoods. The Borough is located in the northeastern part of the state about 20 miles west of New York City.
