With a population of approximately 27,000 residents, Livingston has a lot going for it. Thanks to well-managed growth and development in recent years, Livingston has quickly emerged as one of the most desirable places to live in the Garden State. Livingston real estate owners definitely appreciate the proximity to New York, Newark, and other nearby cities, yet benefit from the township’s unique identity and small town atmosphere.
Livingston is primarily a bedroom community where residents live here and work elsewhere, but more businesses than ever are arriving and thriving. Livingston Mall is a hot shopping spot in town, as are the stores on the Route 10 shopping corridor. Office parks, especially on Eisenhower Parkway, are attracting even more residents. Thanks to I-80 and I-280, the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and Route 24 provide easy and convenient access to the surrounding area and beyond.
Livingston is a beautiful community with residents who prioritize the wise use of green spaces. There are hundreds of acres of parks that include hiking trails, woods, playgrounds, ball diamonds, soccer fields, basketball courts, fishing ponds and so much more. Notable parks include Prospect Park, East Hills Park and Livingston Dog Park. The Riker Hill Complex encompasses three of those parks—Riker Hill Art Park, Becker Park, and Walter Kidde Dinosaur Park. The township’s recreation department manages a range of programs, from youth and adult sports to classes for seniors.Search Listings
