Neptune Township, covering nine square miles, is made up of several sections, each with its own unique personality. Named after Neptune, the Roman water god, the township boasts one of the only aquatic centers in the shore area, located at Neptune High School. Swim teams from across the state compete here and residents can buy passes to use the pool for recreation and exercise.
Neptune High School also has one of the state’s best track teams and the area’s only ROTC program, which is top notch. ROTC students march from the high school to Ocean Grove in the Memorial Day parade and take part in ceremonies honoring veterans at the monuments located at the entrance to Ocean Grove. The school is also the site of a state of the art performing arts center.
The Gables section is located next to the Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center, one of the area’s biggest employers.
Homes in the Shark River Hills section of the township overlook The Shark River where kayakers, boaters and fishermen enjoy life on the Shark River. The new Neptune Marina with its brass dome stands picturesque on the shoreline. Seaview Island, located just off the Belmar Marina, is home to a cluster of townhomes, marinas and the Shark River Beach and Yacht Club.
