Washington Township Reviews
I am a life-long Washington Township resident. The township is made up of several municipalities, containing or once containing portions of Sewell, Turnersville, Blackwood, Grenloch, Glassboro, Pitman, and Sicklerville. The school system is excellent and offered several opportunities to me as an adolescent which allowed me to succeed within the local economy. There are several opportunities for employment within the town and safety is a priority everywhere you go. With nearly 50,000 residents as of the most recent census, the opportunities to make meaningful connections with others are plentiful.
I absolutely love Washington Township, New Jersey. The people are so kind and helpful. I am a Muslim woman living in Washington Township and a majority of the time people have been cordial and friendly towards me. The education system is also quite good with great teachers who are committed to making sure that their students learn.
This is the perfect location. 20 minutes away from the city and farms. 45 minutes from the beach! Shopping areas are close by and nice to visit and walk around. Plenty of gym options, some small and some corporate. The hospital is in town in case of an emergency. And there is a beautiful park, Washington lake park that holds fun events or can just be enjoyed by walking through on a day to day basis. The people around are friendly and I have never noticed anything that made me feel uncomfortable to live in the area. Right down the street is a major college, Rowan, so if you're in your 20's there is plenty to do at nearby bars.
