Roselle Park Reviews

This is a small town with about 14,000 people. The positive thing is that it's one mile square, so you can walk across it in no time. This is also a good town in which to raise a family. The schools are good. There are many opportunities to volunteer for community events, if that's your thing. If not, that is all right. I have lived here over 35 years, raised 2 children here, and Roselle Park is a good place to live.
However, there have been some thefts of packages from peoples' front porches. My car was broken into in October 2018, and the ignition was removed. It cost $700 to replace. Keep this in mind.

The Roselle Park community is exceptionally kind, welcoming, and safe in this day and age: as I have been living here for roughly six months now, I can ethically say that my time here has been nothing but peace and quiet.
Mayor Joe is really turning this place into something special. Excited what the next 3 years has to bring for the town. With Joe as Mayor, anything is possible.
