On behalf of our Town Council, staff, and most importantly our residents, I welcome you to the Borough of Allendale. With a population of just over 6,100, Allendale prides itself on being one of the friendliest towns in Bergen County. In addition to our award winning schools, Allendale has all the charm of small town America. Our Main Street looks like a Norman Rockwell painting, and the open space of our town make it unique in the most populated County in New Jersey. The “gems” of Allendale include the Celery Farm, which consists of over 107 acres of preserve and is one of the most unique bird sanctuaries in the state. This also includes Crestwood Lake Park, a vast sand-bottom club, which hosts one of the most picturesque swim clubs in our county.
What makes Allendale a great place to live is its residents. The number of volunteer organizations is unsurpassed. Allendale has never lost its sense of history and strives to maintain a lifestyle that is reminiscent of times gone by. Memorial Day parade, hot dogs at the volunteer fire house and fireworks display on the Fourth of July, all reflect the small town ambiance that is so rare.
I invite you to browse our website and come visit us in Allendale.
