Just 30 miles outside NYC lies Florham Park, a small Morris County town nicknamed “A Community of Volunteers”. Although the borough has 40 corporations, 100 smaller businesses, two university campuses, and the second lowest tax rate in Morris County, it’s known for its tight-knit community of volunteers. There’s an all-volunteer first-aid squad, fire department and town council, and every town sponsored event is led by volunteers, too!
Florham Park’s children receive a quality public education through the Florham Park School District––highly-rated and composed of three schools serving students in Pre-K thru eighth grade. Florham Park high schoolers attend Hanover Park Regional High School.
Residents here like to play, and the Elm Street Recreation Complex includes several multipurpose athletic fields, a playground, and an artificial turf field. The Florham Park Roller Rink is a favorite, too. During the warmer months, residents can be seen at the popular town pool or enjoying water sports and fishing at the Spring Gardens Lake.
Trader Joe’s may be one of Florham Park’s busiest sites, but it’s been said that the heart of a town is rooted in its history. Florham Park has not forgotten its rural beginnings. In fact, Columbia School District #5, a.k.a. The Little Red School House, was built in 1866 and remains a town icon and gathering place.
Florham Park doesn’t have its own train line, however commuters and visitors can hop a bus or catch the train in the neighboring towns of Madison or Convent Station. Situated between Chatham, Madison, Livingston and East Hanover, Florham Park residents have easy access to routes 10, 280, 287 and 24.
