Latest News & Updates
Welcome to the Borough of Midland Park!
Originally settled by the Dutch, Midland Park was incorporated as a Borough on
September 6, 1894 from portions of Ridgewood Township and Franklin Township
(now Wyckoff Township) and further expanded from additional lands acquired
from Wyckoff Township in 1931. Midland Park was named after the New Jersey
Midland Railway Company which operated a railroad through the area in the 1870s.
With a total area of 1.56 square miles and a population of 7,128 (as of the 2010
census) it borders the Borough of Waldwick to the north, the Village of Ridgewood
to the east and the Township of Wyckoff to the west. Midland Park treasures it's
"small-town" feel yet offers a multitude of housing options, recreational facilities,
quality public and private schools, unique shopping and dining options, nine houses
of worship, and public transportation into nearby Manhattan making it a desirable
town to call your own.

Zika is a viral infection that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Locally
transmitted cases of Zika have not been identified in the US, although the potential
for local transmission exists as the Aedes mosquitoes are present in many states.
The Board of Health strongly encourages protection for yourself, your family, and
our community from mosquito bites:
- Eliminate standing water in and around your home. Be sure to empty and scrub
birdbaths frequently. Turn over, cover or throw out items that hold water (tires,
buckets, planters, toys, flowerpots)
- Tightly cover storage containers (buckets, cisterns, rain barrels) to avoid entry of
mosquitoes. For containers without lids, cover with wire mesh with holes smaller
than an adult mosquito.
- Keep mosquitoes out of your home by using screens on windows and doors,
repair holes in screens, use air conditioning when available.
- Prevent mosquito bites by using an EPA-registered insect repellent containing
DEET, picaridin or IR3535, always using as directed.
- Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Consider using
permethrin-treated clothing and gear.
