Roselle Park is easy to reach by car or public transportation. New Jersey Transit buses 58, 94, and 113 stop in the heart of the downtown, the Raritan Valley train station is four blocks to the north on Chestnut St., and the Garden State Parkway’s exit 137 is a short drive west of town on Westfield Ave. Also, Route 28 passes right through Roselle Park’s downtown Westfield Ave.

Be sure to also visit the downtown commercial district which enhances Roselle Park’s small-town ambience with its diverse offerings of independently owned shops and restaurants rather than any chain outlets. And parking is always available either in one of the two town lots or on the street. To learn more about Roselle Park Township, visit http://www.rosellepark.net

SummerFest’s goal is to publicize the town’s events and make Roselle Park a destination for summer fun. 

“SummerFest - Roselle Park, the place to be!”
