Blackwood Reviews

7 reviews
All Categories
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.
Blackwood is a small community, filled with parks and now a brand new outlet mall. It has increased job opportunities and within the past year and it added so much more to our community. People have found a new respect for Blackwood since the outlets opened.
Blackwood has good schools and good programs for the children. Theyou take care of the town and they have a lot of police awareness. Overall, it's a good place to live.
