Borough of Leonia
312 Broad Avenue 
Leonia New Jersey 07605

Welcome to Leonia.....

While most towns in the northeast New Jersey are being urbanized rapidly, the residents of the tiny borough of Leonia fight to keep its open spaces and true "bedroom community" style, warding off the high-rises found in its neighboring town of Ft. Lee.  
Leonia Schools include Anna C. Scott Elementary School (K-5), Leonia Middle School (6-8), Leonia High School (9-12) and Early Childhood Center  for preschoolers.  Academically Gifted Programs and English as a Second Language are offered, as well as After School Enrichments and After School Day Care.  Each school has an active Home and School Association.

Leonia is the home of Overpeck Park which features a top-notch golf course and where hundreds of people exercise, picnic, bicycle, rollerblade, jog, play tennis and toss frisbees.

Population: 4801
