Around Town

19th-century photo of Freehold TownshipFreehold Township comprises 38 square miles in central Monmouth County, New Jersey. The Township is conveniently located halfway between New York City and Philadelphia. There is easy access to every major market and distribution points within 350 miles. Thanks to an aggressive open space and rezoning policy, we currently have more than 9,000 acres of permanent open space in Freehold Township.

Residents in our community enjoy an award-winning Parks and Recreation Department, an excellent school system, one of the lowest municipal tax and water and sewer rates in the region, first-rate municipal services and the area's premier retail shopping outlet, Freehold Raceway Mall. What makes Freehold Township so special though is its ability to offer all of these amenities while managing to maintain its rich rural and historical character.
