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.

Mayor's Message

We’ve gotten through our first real Nor’easter of the fall and, while the flooding was about as bad as anything we’ve had since Sandy, Oceanport weathered the storm fairly well. Those of us whose houses became riverfront properties for a few hours on October 27th are acutely aware of how fragile our existence is on this peninsula and even those who weren’t threatened by the flood waters were restricted in their movements because so many roads in town were impassable. Given the fact this latest storm didn’t bring all that much rain, the incredible volume of water our streets had at high tide was the result of water backing up from the Shrewsbury River through the Borough’s 55 storm drains. This is, in all likelihood, the new norm. The Borough is in the beginning stages of installing check valves on approximately 3 dozen of those storm drains. It is expected that these check valves (which are designed to close off the storm drain to prevent river water from backing up into the system) will lessen the volume of water on our streets during severe weather events. In the interim, Oceanport’s Fire, Police, First Aid, OEM and DPW personnel will continue to keep our residents as safe as possible and our streets as debris free as possible. But they need our help to do so. If we’re having a severe weather event and flooding is predicted, stay off the roads in the hours leading up to and following high tide. If you see a downed tree or electrical line, calling the police is much more effective than posting on the Oceanport Resident’s Facebook Page. Read more...
