Welcome to Oceanport
The Borough of Oceanport, incorporated in 1920,is a predominantly residential community along the shores of the Shrewsbury River.
Oceanport is home of Monmouth Park Racetrack and Fort Monmouth. Though only 3.2 square miles, Oceanport's nearly six thousand residents enjoy not only the Shrewsbury River, but various recreational sports programs, an active senior group and a true feeling of community.
Oceanport boasts various volunteer organizations who give countless man hours to our community making it a place residents are proud to call home.
There’s a lot going on in Oceanport! Spring is here and outdoor activities are beginning to fill the schedules. Our Parks & Recreation Committee welcomed the warmer weather with a community outing at Monmouth Park’s Blue Grass Mini Golf. The days are longer as baseball and softball games are in full swing and the NJ Marathon went off without a hitch as more than 11,000 runners made their way through town. It’s a great time of year!
Potential sites for the new borough hall were discussed as part of a town hall meeting held on April 21st. Sonnenfeld and Trocchia Architects P. A., presented the various locations along with pros and cons to a very engaged audience of residents. The new building would be slightly larger than the current flood damaged structure and constructed on Fort Monmouth (Main St. area), Gatta Park, and part of a downtown redevelopment or, at the existing site. A fifth alternative is the former Garrison Headquarters, Russel Hall.
