Park Ridge is an excellent community to live in. Neighbors know each other, schools are highly ranked with small class sizes. Homes are well kept. Excellent police department, wonderful volunteer fire and ambulance. Own electric company, and water!!! Hardly ever an issue with losing power. The best DPW Anywhere! Roads are always cleared in timely manner during snow storms. Great restaurants in town and close by. We are becoming more and more diverse each year.

Small town. Town center pretty bland, many many gas stations. But schools are excellent and a very safe, happy place to grow up!
Growing up in Park Ridge is great. The public schools (K-12) are small and are ranked fairly. There is a pretty large commuter population here, this is because of the Pascack Valley Line which runs right through our town. There are a few grievances currently between the towns folk and the local government concerning zoning, however the town is pretty close knit.
