Basking Ridge in Bernards Township

Basking Ridge in Bernards Township has retained its small-town charm for over 200 years. Most of the shops, restaurants, and services along tree-lined South Finley Avenue are located in historic 19th-century houses. In fact, the downtown area has so much history that it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

The town has two commuter train stations to New York City making it an ideal suburban town. Pleasant Valley Park, built with Lady Byrd Johnson’s Green Acres funding, provides a wonderful community pool, recreation fields and outdoor amphitheatre. Basking Ridge is home to The Somerset Hills YMCA and Wellness Center.
