River Vale went from a one-traffic-light town to a destination location in just 10 years. Now a centerpiece for commerce, the town has several strip malls, banks, nail salons and casual eateries. But don't let the booming downtown fool you; River Vale still reflects the everyman town - it embraces history, residential space and privacy, as well as the overall growth of a community of more than 9,600 residents. River Vale is a golfer's heaven, as it is the only municipality in the county with three golf courses - River Vale Country Club, Edgewood Country Club and Valley Brook Golf Course.
