Bordentown consists of the township and city. The township is on the north side of 130 and city on south side of 130. It is a great small town to raise a family. The residents of Bordentown are wonderful and are a big family that has each other's back. We have wonderful restaurants in the city and various events planned during the year that bring the community together - cranberry fest, halloween parade, christmas tree lighting, 5ks....

I have never been aware of any trouble of theft, vandalism, or violence. Walking around at night feels perfectly safe. The police regularly patrol the streets and community lots and are friendly and keep a positive presence at local events.

There are many local events at the park, library, and community center. Some people are very involved and others are not. Everyone is cordial and most people greet each other when passing on the street.
