Although Maple Shade Township is a small town, we have many wonderfully unique things to offer. Being such a small town, we are connected as a community because we all know eachother and have the opportunity to grow up together. Growing up with these kinds of conditions is beneficial because we find our life-long friends that we have gone through school with, and most likely not move to a different town. We also have the one-and-only, Custard Stand. The Custard Stand is unique to Maple Shade only, and it brings people from other places into our town. I love my town!

Maple Shade is an ok town. It's has a very small town vibe and everyone knows everyone. That's not really my thing, so here isn't my favorite place to live, but if people like that sort of thing than Maple Shade is great! I think the schooling could be improved and I think there should be more funding for the theater groups in Maple Shade.
I moved to Maple Shade when I was still in middle school from Philadelphia and the difference was immeasurable. Maple Shade is one of the calmest, nicest places I have seen. It's a very small town, where almost nothing happens. For better or for worse. In my time in this town, I have seen maybe one or two crimes happen as opposed to Philadelphia's daily occurrences. Been here for over a decade now. But the calmness is sometimes its own issue. Just as much as nothing bad happens, the town itself doesn't have much to do. Good thing the town is located with easy access to several nearby towns.
