Edgewater Park, a small township in eastern New Jersey, is so named because the Delaware River runs along its northeastern border and Rancocas Creek flows a few hundred feet from its southwestern border. Sandwiched between these two waterways, the community offers several pleasant neighborhoods with homes for rent. A suburban community, Edgewater Park is located about 15 miles south of Trenton and 15 miles northeast of Philadelphia.
Easy access to these cities is one of the appealing aspects to rentals in Edgewater Park, and the New Jersey Transit system even provides buses from the township to Philadelphia on routes 409 and 419. Locally, residents are greeted by a municipality with a small downtown area, several beautiful parks and many recreational opportunities nearby. The township's location along the water and near two exciting urban centers has made it one of the most popular areas in Philadelphia.
The downtown area, home to most of Edgewater Park's shops and restaurants, is set between the major routes of Cooper Street and Woodland Road in the northeastern part of town. The Burlington Pike, another hub for local businesses, runs along the southern border of town, past the Willingboro Town Shopping Center. Houses for rent can be found in pleasant areas near the township's many parks. Weimann Field, Dinoia Park, Kite Field, Memorial Field, Wood Lake Park and Roosevelt Park and Pond are located throughout the community, inviting residents for both active and passive recreation.
Olympia Lakes, a pair of adjacent and nearly identical bodies of water, sit just over Edgewater Park's southwestern boundary. Those with rentals in the area are invited to fish for bluegill, crappie, smallmouth bass and sunfish in the lakes. For other recreation options, the township holds several annual events, including a community yard sale in September, Breakfast with the Bunny in March and a Holiday Tree Lighting in December.
