welcome to Pennsauken Township



My name is Betsy McBride and I am honored to be Pennsauken Township’s Mayor for 2017.

Welcome to the Township website. Through this site, we hope to introduce visitors to our community and to serve our almost 36,000 residents.


Happy 125th Birthday Pennsauken!

Pennsauken was incorporated on February 18, 1892; and in celebration of the Township’s 125th birthday, our Public Events Committee has several events planned. You can check out this website, read our local newspaper, All Around Pennsauken, check us out on Facebook, or watch Channel 19 to keep informed of upcoming events.

Pennsauken is 12 square miles, bordered by the Delaware River, Cooper River, Cinnaminson, Palmyra, Camden, Merchantville, Collingswood and Cherry Hill. The town was incorporated in 1892 and currently is home to just under 35,500 residents and 3,300 businesses.

We are proud of our cultural diversity in Pennsauken.  We are proud of our location and access to all the major highways in South Jersey.  We are also proud of our Transit Center, connecting the RiverLine and the NJ Transit Atlantic City line. 

We have a diversity of housing options. Some built before the Township was incorporated in 1892, some built in the 1950-1960’s, and some new builds. Drive around the neighborhoods and get familiar with the town we call home.

The Municipal Building, located at 5605 North Crescent Blvd (Route 130) at the intersection of Route 130 and Merchantville Avenue, is open 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please feel free to contact any of our staff for assistance.  A list of the departments is on the left.  If you don’t know what department you need, click on the "Contact Us" button.

In order to be accessible as the mayor, I will be in the Municipal Building every Wednesday.  You may call for an appointment by dialing 856-665-1000 x152. You may also feel free to email me at bmcbride@twp.pennsauken.nj.us.

Thanks for visiting!  We look forward to working for and with you.
