The town is relatively small, which means that everyone knows everyone. It is easy to get to know people and be involved in the neighborhood. The township also offers many things to its residents. For example they are currently offering free ice skating almost every month. Apart from this they offer small events at the library, and at the school. During the summer their is also a farmer's market where local farmers go to sell their fresh fruits, vegetables, and other products. The Paramus mall is also fairly close by as well as other shopping establishments.

My experiences with my neighborhood of Rochelle Park has been amazing to say the least. The community is friendly caring and very much in-tuned with each other as though we were family, one big happy neighborhood family, so much so that we are all connected via social media. Everyone is familiar with each others backgrounds from family to professions, down to the local business owners and police officers who by the way continuously keep watch of its residents. The streets are clean and constantly being maintained, trash and recyclables picked up regularly, and above all everyone maintains their lawns so visual appeal is top notch for oncoming visitors. Crime non existent because as stated before our local police officers are on heavy duty watch 24/7. So to conclude my rating I would have to say on a scale from 1-10 Rochelle Park receives an 11.
If I had to change something, it would have to be the no left turn rule which can get frustrating at times.
I live in Rochelle Park. It is a small town where you know a lot of people. I like that I can walk around and know many of the people I see. Everyone that works or volunteers for the town are great. Rochelle Park has some great places to eat or spend time with family.
