Welcome to Cedar Glen Lakes
Looking for a great Retirement Community? Cedar Glen Lakes is the perfect place for you! Our beautiful community for active adults (55+) is located within New Jersey's Pinelands National Reserve - not far from the shore in Ocean County.
Our village was established in 1970 and to help contain costs became a self-governed cooperative community in 1979. A combination of 1236 homes scattered over 222 acres, amid stately shade trees and well-maintained lawns, make for a park like setting. There are three picturesque lakes and 11 miles of paved roads perfect for walking, jogging, and biking.
Our residents can avail themselves of our own buses which provide transportation in the morning and afternoon to several shopping areas and malls, and on weekends to houses of worship.
The monthly costs cover bus service, real estate taxes, insurance on the dwelling, water and sewer service, lawn care, as well as snow and trash removal. We also provide interior and exterior maintenance, plumbing repairs (water lines, faucets, toilets, hot water heaters, etc.); electric repairs (heaters, circuit breakers, stoves, etc.); gutter cleaning, wood trim painting, termite extermination, window caulking, replacement of roofs, etc. All this service for a nominal assessment - based on the size of the dwelling.
We have two club houses. One with meeting and game rooms, plus a distinctive library. Our second, larger hall is equipped with a stage, audio/visual enhancement as well as kitchen facilities for social and entertainment functions.
The picnic areas, lighted bocce and shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits and miniature gold course are nicely maintained. Our monthly publication and in-house closed circuit TV keep our residents informed of events.
