The Name Wanaque is thought to have been derived from the Lenni Lenape Native American word meaning “land of sassafras”.  Wanaque Borough, with its small-town feel has emerged as a very popular location to live since Rt. 287 opened in 1993, with access to major highways, making Wanaque a commuter's delight!  Home to the Wanaque Reservoir, a very picturesque dam located in the north end of town.  Wanaque has two K-8 public schools and Lakeland Regional High School, serving both Wanaque and Ringwood Borough.  Wanaque Recreation Commission is in full force and serving the children with many activities such as football, baseball, soccer and much more.  Nearby hiking, parks, restaurants, shopping and that hometown feel are all part of what Wanaque offers.
