I really like living in Budd Lake. We live across the street from an amazing park with trails, baseball fields, soccer fields, a pond, memorials, a water feature for summer time, and a playground area for kids. The easy access is awesome! I did not give 5 stars because it is a little far out from places I like to go, but it is a peaceful place to live.
Review Budd Lake
Budd Lake is a Beautiful place to live. If you like lakes you can boat and enjoy the lake all year round with ice skating and ice fishing. The schools are very well ranked in NJ winning many awards in both academics and athleticism. The community is a very active one with many recreational sports available for adults and children.
The community here in Delaware is okay. Since I am more of a city person Delaware seems very boring because there isn't much that happens here. The college I attend (Delaware State University) is really great! The people are helpful, friendly, and kind.
