Welcome to the Borough of Pine Beach.  We are a small residential community located along the banks of the Toms River.  Pine Beach is a great place to raise a family, with many schooling opportunities close by, or a great place to retire.  We are minutes to the ocean beaches and within easy commuting of New York City and Philadelphia.

The location of Pine Beach is a draw for many, but the real quality of our borough lies with its residents.  Our residents take pride and ownership in our borough.  This is evidenced by the number of citizens who volunteer for various projects including the annual Pine Beach 5k. (pinebeach5k.com). If you would like to volunteer for any activity please contact me, or anyone in borough hall.

We provide senior services with informational meetings, lunches, and breakfast.  Pine Beach also has numerous parks to stroll or run through, play soccer, baseball, or basketball.  Being located along the Toms River we also provide bathing beaches with lifeguards during the summer months.  For those into sailing or boating the Pine Beach Yacht Club (pbycnj.com) provides instructions for young and old.


I would invite you to take advantage of all that Pine Beach has to offer and to enjoy “the Pearl of the Toms River.”

Pine Beach Adopt-a-Drain Program

The Pine Beach Environmental Committee is kicking off a Pine Beach Adopt-a-Drain program. We are encouraging residents to look after their nearby storm drains and clear the top grate and surrounding area of debris year-round. Everything that is in the street ends up in the Toms River and the Barnegat Bay. Rainwater carries leaves, grass, fertilizers, excess salt, trash and dirt through the storm drain system directly to our waters. Public works does a good job of routinely clearing storm drains, you can assist by keeping your storm drain grate clear of debris.

Adopted "your" storm drain by sweeping, raking, and clearing leaves and other debris from the surface of the drain year-round. As a reminder, nothing should ever be discarded into storm drains, including waste oil, grass clippings and pet waste.

Spread the word about the program. A simple task can make a big impact on the environment.

Remember, Only Rain Down the Drain!





For more information please go to the NJDEP Stormwater web site at www.njstormwater.org.

Know the Bear Facts
Black Bears in New Jersey

Since the 1980s New Jersey's black bear population has been increasing and expanding its range both southward and eastward from the forested areas of northwestern New Jersey.  While the majority of New Jersey's black bears do live in the northwestern portion of the state, sightings have been reported in all 21 of New Jersey's counties.  Residents in every community as well as folks visiting the many parks, wildlife management areas, and other open spaces in bear country will benefit from knowing how to react to an encounter with a black bear.  The most common bear problem New Jersey's residents experience is black bears getting into their garbage.  Bears are attracted to neighborhoods by garbage odors, so properly securing your garbage is one of the best ways to prevent bears from becoming a nuisance in your community. Residents are encouraged to work within their community to make sure all garbage is secured and kept away from bears. For tips on proper garbage management and coexisting with bears, visit: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/bearfacts.htm
