The Holmdel community is a great place to live. It is not over developed like other towns in the area (although there seems to be developers who are trying). The proximity of beautiful parks, a great school district and rural appeal plus commuting opportunities (both to work and the beach) makes it a perfect place to live in the State. The local government must do a better job with infrastructure improvements in the community.

Holmdel township is a good town for families, especially those with children The school system is one of the best in the area. There is also many new housing developments being built so there is many opportunities for new people to move here. However, the result is now overcrowding the schools and the small town in general. In addition, it is on the more expensive side as many of the houses are mansions.
Holmdel schools are excellent. The town itself is rather boring with not much to do. There is no real town center so no real community gathering place other than Bell Works which hasn’t really taken off yet. Great parks and family friendly environment. Town/schools heavily emphasize sports and academics. Not a lot of geographic diversity either. Many many many families from Staten Island relocate here.
