Welcome to the Township of Medford, New Jersey
The Township of Medford is nestled between fertile farms and the Federal Pinelands Natural Reserve in Burlington County, New Jersey. Located 30 minutes from Philadelphia and 45 minutes from the Jersey shore, our Township serves as the hub of business and culture for this region. Unlike many communities, Medford has not lost its’ “soul” to the suburban sprawl which has consumed many of New Jersey’s towns. Medford has a bustling Village area, where unique shops and restaurants line our original and historic “Main Street.” The residential areas in Medford have been created with respect for the woodlands, streams and lakes surrounding us. Homes of log cabins, Victorian estates and contemporary facades dot the landscape. Dedicated open space, private camps, bike paths and sidewalks allow for many recreational activities. With Medford’s border of a million acres of protected forest and over 50% of the township as dedicated open space and natural surroundings, we are assured of a quiet and healthy environment for the future.
"For that’s the kind of place Medford is; a friendly tight knit community where everyone knows everyone.” National Geographic Books, Guide to Small Town Escapes, April 2000.
