This Bergen County city was once known for its busy influx of wool and silk mills that lay along the Passaic and Saddle Rivers around which the city is built. Today, Garfield enjoys views of these beautifully scenic rivers while sustaining a population of around 30,000 in its just over two square miles. Within this space are nearly two dozen places of worship, plenty of recreation facilities such as a YMCA and the City Recreation Center, a Boys and Girls Club, a Senior Citizens Center, a Health Center, and several volunteer fire and ambulance companies. Garfield is a community that is truly active and involved with their own health and wellness.
