After 5 Years, New Lettering Installed
APRIL 15, 2014 — Workmen from “Signs and Truck Lettering” of Wayne installed 21 painted, aluminum letters spelling out the official name of the Borough of Woodland Park on the north facing wall of the municipal building at 5 Brophy Lane. Soon after the borough was renamed on Jan. 1, 2009, the lettering for West Paterson was removed, and the wall remained empty.

“N.J. Tree Recovery Campaign” Provides FREE Tree Seedlings To Residents Of W.P.
   Free tree seedlings will be available to Woodland Park residents in the month of April as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. This program helps communities replace trees damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
   From 9 am to 2 pm on Apr. 9 to Apr. 12, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at Recycling Center, 901 McBride Ave.
   Seedlings, available on a first come, first served basis, also come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them. The guides help residents choose the right place on a property to plant a tree while keeping in mind the tree’s full-grown size in the future. Residents should plant the seedlings within two days after pick-up in order to prevent the roots from drying out.
   The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute over 500,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of the next five years. It is a joint effort between Woodland Park, the New Jersey State Forestry Services Community Forestry Program, The State Forest Nursery, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, and the Arbor Day Foundation. Arbor Day Foundation. FedEx, and BJ’s Wholesale Club provide financial support for the program.
   When properly planted and maintained, trees can be assets to a community. They improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood or business district, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
   If you have any questions, please contact the Woodland Park Dept. of Public Works at 973-256-1264.

Excavation of Shared Force Main in Paterson Reveals Serious Problem
Excavated force main pipe can be broken with a shovel.
 
 
 
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.
