Established in 1871, Cranford is a close knit community where many of its residents are actively involved in schools, sports, civic and community organizations. The Township is proud of its recreational facilities that include two outdoor pools, and indoor pool and fitness complex, bike path, canoe club, tennis courts, sports fields and parks.
Cranford is conveniently located just off the Garden State Parkway and on the New Jersey Transit Raritan Rail Line. Commuters have the choice of driving or riding the New Jersey Public Transit System's bus or rail service. But with Cranford's rail station located in the town's center, many chose to commute on the rail to the Newark/Penn Station and transfer to the many lines into New York City, Jersey City, Newark Airport, or the many stops down the Jersey Shore. For information on schedules, fares, maps and trip planning for either rail or bus service, head to the New Jersey Public Transit System's web site.
