REMINDER TO ALL DOG OWNERS
In order for everyone to safely enjoy our parks, open spaces, and walking trails, Township officials would like to offer a reminder that, per Chapter 66 of the Medford Township Administrative Code, dogs must be kept on a leash.  The only exception is the identified off-leash area in Freedom Park known as Duke’s Dog Run.

Also, dog owners are required under this same Ordinance to remove their pet’s waste by placing it in a suitable bag and depositing it in a trash receptacle.  For your convenience, pet waste bag dispensers are located in our parks.  Pet waste is not only offensive, but it can pollute waters, as it is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it into our lakes and streams. 

We thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Welcome to the official home for the Township
of Medford, New Jersey on the web.

Medford has distinguished itself as one of the premiere suburbs of the Philadelphia area. Nestled within the beautiful landscape of the South Jersey Pine Barrens, Medford is conveniently located in Burlington County in close proximity to both the Jersey Shore and the city of Philadelphia.
A diverse town within itself, the historic district of Medford Village provides for a fun, unique shopping experience, while the great schools, recreational facilities, and neighborhoods make the town a great place to live! And though the many lakes throughout the township bring for many breathtaking sunsets, it is the tight-knit spirit of community that truly makes the township of Medford one of New Jersey's hidden gems.
