Berkeley Township Reviews
Berkeley Township is the greatest place to call home. Growing up here, there has been so much to do. You can head over to the beaches and boardwalk, yet your only less than 2 hours away from New York City and Philadelphia. There are opportunities for camping and fishing. You are centrally located near Toms River where there are restaurants and shopping. You can take a walk through the Barnegat trail, Berkeley Island Park, or the Ocean Gate Boardwalk. You can enjoy concerts and events at Veterans Park. The township is safe and clean and a fun, family environment. The schools are great and offer plenty of opportunities for educational growth. If you want to spend a night in Seaside at the many bars and clubs. Berkeley Township is the place to be!
I moved to Berkeley Township, NJ over 16 years ago. It is a town filled with people I went to school with. Some are still lifelong friends, others chose not to remain friends or move away. I raised my children here and they are both smart, successful students. My older son graduated last year, after going through all the schools in Berkeley Township. My younger son will be a senior at Central Regional High School this year and graduate June of 2019. Overall we have been very happy living here, raising our children and making lifelong friendships.
This used to be a good community to raise a family, was very safe, close to the bay and ocean (boardwalk / Seaside), but has taken a turn for the worse in recent years. It is definitely a bedroom community with little to no entertainment / nightlife. There are ample parks, sports fields, a bicycle trail, and summer concerts in Veteran's Park. In the past few years crime and the presence of drugs have increased dramatically. Taxes are absurdly high, and dealing with the planning board (for residential or business purposes) is torture. Many people must commute at least an hour or more to find better paying jobs and more engaging opportunities as there are few in this area.
