New Jersey's Best Towns for Families: Mendham Township

Highest Ranked: Morris County


Published:

Mendham TownshipIf surrounding your kids with beautiful, green space is at the top of your must-have checklist, Mendham Township could be a perfect fit. Amazing public schools, lots of families, little to no crime and convenient access to highways (which means shorter commute times) put this Morris County town at third place overall. Lucky residents get to enjoy Mendham Township’s 850 acres of park land (spread over eight different parks) and 55 miles of walking trails covering the town’s 17.8 square miles. Plus, you can swim in the summer and sled in the winter at Lewis Morris Park, play baseball or touch football on the fields at Mosley Preserve or spend a long July afternoon riding paddle boats, playing laser tag or catching outdoor movies around the bonfire at Brookside Beach. And if that’s still not enough for you, Mendham Township is also home to the Schiff Nature Preserve—a 423-acre tract of land with year-round educational programs for families.
