Galloway Township is a lovely place to live. It is nestled between the Pine Barrens and the Jersey Shore, boasts friendly suburbs and farming communities, and - in spite of being NJ's largest geographic municipality - maintains the charm of a small town. Overall, both the K-8 and high school districts are up to par with NJ's quality public schools. Still, I would say the town is lacking in diversity and, until a fairly recent redistricting, the schools felt fairly segregated. I believe there is still a lot of room for progress in that sense. The town gov't has also been wrapped up in drama lately. Many main roads have recently been redone. The police somehow drive literal Camaros, so I wonder how that money was allocated in the budget. During certain times of the month their patrol can be pretty brutal. Generally, Galloway is a calm and enjoyable place to live, but I believe the town has some untapped potential for growth that the local gov't needs to address.

Galloway Township has a great variety of activities to do such as the massive man-made lake that was built when I was a child. I can still remember sliding the sloped mud banks and that my friends and I would upset our families coming home covered in mud. Also, the shops at Smithville are always wonderful for a stroll on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Being able to travel five minutes from the populated shops to find yourself staring at the beautiful wildlife at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge will be able to make the most high-strung person leave with peace and tranquility. The biggest thing that I would love to see slowed down in Galloway would be the growth of land development and the disappearance of our forests. Being such a wonderful place to live, work, and relax, Galloway is unsurprisingly being overdeveloped.
For a place for a day out whether you’re looking to find a job, shop, enjoy nature, and even go fishing, Galloway Township, New Jersey, is your place.
Galloway Township is a peaceful area. Stockton University and Atlantic Care Hospital are just nearby in the center of the township which are good features of the area. The public schools ( elementary, middle school, and high school) having attended them are pretty excellent too, very safe all around and have great academic turn out for students. As of its safety, Galloway is pretty safe, it's kind of secluded from other areas, but still, an easy place to navigate and go around other surrounding cities. There are always events happening in the park like Trunk or Treat, Movie in the Park, Carnivals. Overall, it has a good community atmosphere with many people involved and participating.
