Even though Bogota is so small there is actually a lot to do. There are three parks, three sports fields, a recreational center, a public library, and even a town pool. The facilities are almost always run by community members. When Hurricane Sandy hit, the next day everyone was outside helping each other clean the rubble that was left.

Bogota is full of different cultures and loves expressing it. There are often parades to celebrate the diversity we have and since it’s so easy to get everyone from town together it is always such a wonderful time. Something that isn’t common in many towns is that the mayor is like family. Chris Kelemen, known to all as Chris, lives in Bogota and is involved in everything that goes on. He has a good relationship with the community members and you can see him taking walks often.

The first thing you see when you Bogota, NJ is the two vibrant green home fields of the Bogota Buccaneer baseball and football team. Bogota is only one mile long. One of the main staples in the town is the high school. It is the biggest building and although neighboring towns might not find it so big it holds a special place. Even though it is a small school it excel in everything we do. Its sports team like volleyball and basketball always make it to the state championships despite playing against bigger towns.
