Enjoying a prime location in close proximity to Interstate 295, the residential community of Westville boroughs grew up along the rolling Delaware River. Residents enjoy an easy commute to nearby Philadelphia, although many take advantage of the increasing opportunities for employment in nearby commercial and industrial centers. Westville touts itself as “The Gateway to South Jersey" and proudly remembers the heydays of Washington Park, one of the nation's finest pleasure resorts. Today, the community offers a wide range of housing in tree-shaded neighborhoods and a quiet, hometown atmosphere. The quaint shops of nearby Woodbury are convenient, and boating is still a popular sport on Timber Creek. The boroughs also offer parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, tennis courts, and many social and sports organizations.
