Bellmawr is strategically located near several major thoroughfares. Although this borough is a primarily residential haven, commercial development creates a convenient lifestyle. Area youth receive an excellent education in the neighborhood schools, while alternatives for private education and higher education are available within a reasonable commuting distance. In addition to the usual community recreation amenities that include a scenic and tranquil conservation area, the nationally famous Pocono Mountain Resorts and ski areas are accessible for weekend getaways. Also available for refreshing getaways in the warmer summer months are the Jersey Shore resort communities, beaches, amusements, and attractions. Close to home are diverse recreation programs, a conversation area covering nearly 30 acres, playgrounds, athletic fields, team sports, tennis courts, and parkland.
