A nice quiet town.
Franklin Lakes is a sprawling suburban area with larger lots and larger homes than you may find elsewhere. There is a small but vibrant downtown area on Franklin Ave (not to be confused with Franklin Lake Rd). The town boasts the private Indian Trail Club for recreation as well as a lovely Nature Reserve for walking and fishing. They now allow non-motorized boats too in the nature preserve! It is so peaceful and a great advantage to living in the area! Franklin Lakes Day is in the fall and the October Fest by Market Basket is great fun for families. New Bocce Courts are now available on the fields.
There are excellent schools as well as in-town private schools. Students have a choice of attending Ramapo High School or Indian Hills High School both a part of the Ramapo Indian Hills District.
Commuting by bus is about an 1:15 and it stops at the VFW Hall on Franklin Avenue. You can park your car there. There is no train line for this town but you can drive to Ridgewood or Allendale train stations in minutes. Also, Route 208 goes through Franklin Lakes so many people drive in as well.
Generally, taxes are quite a bit lower than comparable areas because the homes have their own well and septic. (No public sewer system for now but it is in the works). There are many different areas of Franklin Lakes so please call me so I can show you around!
