If you're looking for a sleepy little town with a strong sense of community and historic buildings lining picturesque streets, you'll feel right at home in Bergenfield. This family-friendly borough in Bergen County was ranked the second best city to raise a child in all of New Jersey, which means it's a safe place to live or visit for every member of the family, fur and human children included!
One of the best dog-friendly places you can go to learn about the history of Bergenfield is Clarence W Brett Park at Historic New Bridge Landing. This is a paved path that meanders right along the Hudson River. You will find monuments along the way which explain important historical events that happened here. The large grassy areas on both sides of the path are perfect for picnics or a game or two of catch.
While you are here, you can stop and pay your respects to the soldiers that have given their lives throughout the years at the Veterans' Memorial Park. The trails that wind through the park lead to a large space with the names to commemorate the fallen as well as those who are MIA.
Whether you and your furry friend need some peace and quiet, or you're looking for somewhere to settle down and call home, Bergenfield is the pawfect place!
