A brief history of Harrington Park
Harrington Park was formed on March 29, 1904, from portions of Harrington Township and Washington Township, and parts of the borough of Closter.
The name "Harrington Park" was based on the larger Harrington Township from which it was in part derived, which in turn was based on the family name Haring, who were early settlers of the region.
According to the United States Census Bureau, Harrington Park borough had a total area of 2.059 square miles (5.333 km2), including 1.832 square miles (4.745 km2) of land and 0.227 square miles (0.589 km2) of water (11.04%).
