West Milford Reviews

2 reviews
I love the community of West Milford because everyone in the community helps out and even though its small it feels like home. When something tragic happens like someones house burned down, the school planned out how to help them and get them the things they lost. When there was a teacher strike the local church feed all the kids during that time. We also hold different get together's like cookouts and parades. It's a place that I'm proud to be raising my children and building my life.

WEST MILFORD IS A SMALL QUIET TOWN. JUST A FEW SMALL STORES TO KEEP YOU IN STOCK OF WHAT YOU NEED ON A DAY TO DAY. I FEEL THE SCHOOLS ARE BETTER THEN FAIR. NOT MUCH TODO IN THE TOWN BUT WEST MILFORD HAS A WONERFUL PARK CALLED WATERSMITH. ALL OTHER THINGS ARE A 10-15 MIN DRIVE. ALL AND ALL ITS A SAFE QUIET SMALL TOWN. PERFRCT FOR PEOPLE LOOOKING TO START A FAMILY.
