Located in the heart of Passaic CountyNew Jersey, less than twenty miles from midtown New York City, Wayne Township offers its citizens and guests a balanced suburban community. From lake communities loaded with recreational facilities and museums, an excellent modern free public library, exceptional public school system, and William Paterson University, one of New Jersey’s state universities, to shopping and business centers, Wayne has something for everyone. Our site provides informational services about township departments and divisions, history, recreation, and more!
