Manalapan Real Estate Listings and Information
With a Lenape Indian name whose translation varies widely - from "edible roots" or "within a covered swamp" to “land of good bread or good land to settle upon” - Manalapan covers over 30 square miles of land in Western Monmouth County, New Jersey.
Offering the best of all worlds to its residents, the Township mixes suburban community living with easy access to all points of interest throughout the metropolitan area, a convenient commute into New York City and a quick 15-mile drive to the state’s famous beaches.
With a great school system, outstanding parks and recreation facilities, efficient transportation, proximity to stores, urban centers, shopping malls, hospitals, major highways, restaurants, and easy commute to New York City and Philadelphia, this may be why Manalapan was rated as one of the best places to live and work in the state by New Jersey Monthly magazine in 2003, and the second “Hottest Town” in which to live on the East Coast by Money magazine in 2004.
Monmouth Battlefield State Park is a 1,810-acre state park located on the border of Manalapan and Freehold Township.
