Berkeley Township Reviews

16 reviews
All Categories
I loved growing up in Berkeley. It was very family oriented. There was always a game to go to on the weekends, whether it was soccer, baseball, or football. There was always kids around in the neighborhood and for the most part, there weren't too many crimes. As I got older, we did not stay in the town at night because there wasn't many things to do. But overall, I loved living there and I love telling everyone where I grew up!
Review Berkeley Township
Berkeley Township is a small town with a large enough population for everyone to live their own lives. It is an easy commute to both NYC or Philly and not farm form the beach, mountains, pinelands or farmlands. There are many (over five) state/local parks within five minutes of one another. All in all a very outdoorsy town with a local charm.
It's a very safe neighborhood, the people are incredibly friendly. The crime rates are extremely low which makes it the perfect neighborhood for families especially one's that include children.
