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.”


Mayor Lawrence W. Cuneo





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!
