The expansive township of Old Bridge was primarily farmland until the early 1950s. While significant stretches of land are still devoted to agriculture and the 1000-acre Cheesequake State Park, the community is developing into a residential haven with considerable retail activity. Horse properties, larger lots, and generous acreage are still available. The township offers an ideal location in the Gateway Region near cultural attractions, urban amenities, the recreational paradise of the shore region. Ample farmland, green space, a beachfront, boat marinas, and lush municipal parks add to the quality of life.
