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.
Is it Autumn already? What happened to Summer? The last three months were marked by pleasant weather, the opening of the new boat ramp, and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah headlined a record breaking Haskell Invitational showcasing Monmouth Park and our Borough.
Oceanport did an exceptional job as host community of the Haskell. For three days, crowds gathered to catch a brief glimpse of history as American Pharoah galloped around the track. Our Emergency Services volunteers and Police Department dedicated hours ensuring public safety and managing traffic. Frozen zones on Port-Au-Peck Avenue and around the racetrack improved our ability to respond to emergencies. Haskell Day will be remembered for the 60 thousand plus crowd, a record handle, and great day of horseracing capped by American Pharoah in the Winner’s Circle.
