Woolwich is a very family friendly area, with most homes having three or more residents. There are plenty of sports teams and clubs for children to participate in. The biggest downside is that the public schooling is less than ideal. Public schools are over crowded, underfunded, and pay more attention to athletics than education. The same kids get recognized for their achievements, while other kids who are achieving the same feats, are disregarded.

I live in a calm suburb area. Nearest mall is about a half hour away, but there is a supermarket five minutes away and restaurants and stores. Also there are parks nearby with public tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields. Obviously being in NJ property tax is relatively higher. But the schools are decent.
I grew up in Woolwich Township and lived there for 15 years. I loved it the entire time I lived there. There were a few issues, like being far away from nearly everything. If you want to go to a mall or the movies or a chain restaurant, you had to drive at least 20-30 minutes to find one. The township is constantly growing and adapting to all of the new community members moving in. In the time I lived there, they built 3 new public school buildings - doubling the amount they already had, as well as building onto the ones that previously existed. There have new shopping centers and contracts for them popping up all over the place. As far as nightlife, there's really nothing to do in Woolwich Township once the stores close. Unless you're travelling out of town or found a backyard party, you're probably staying in for the night. Woolwich is a very safe town to live in. If any crimes occur, they're minor drug infractions from traffic stops - like marijuana possession.
