What I like most about Blackwood is that there are literally all of the schools you'd need to go to right within distance of each other. So there's Blackwood Elementary and then a little down the road, Charles W. Lewis school, then again up the road Highland High School and back down the road is the community college Camden County. Perfect for growing up and jumping to one school to the next. I do wish there were more major stores nearby like Walmart, but equally as exciting is the new outlets that opened up near the Autumn Ridge Apts and college! It's a great place to shop and enjoy your time.
Black wood is a nice suburban area to grow up and/or raise a family in. There are three shopping centers, a few local gyms, responsible police, a well education system and a clean, pleasant park. This Park contains two soccer fields, two base ball field, two playgrounds for kids, and two full basketball courts. I have spent quite a bit of time in Blackwood and I love the area. I would recommend someone to visit.
Blackwood overall is a cute little town to live in. The school systems are great. There's also a lot of building up in the area that's going on with the new Outlets that were just built. Also, Camden County College is right by the Outlets so if you're going to school that's a great opportunity for a part time job.
