Letter from The Mayor

Welcome to Swedesboro,
On behalf of Borough Council, our Administrative Staff and our Public Works employees it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Historic Town of Swedesboro.

Settled in 1638, Swedesboro is a town rich in history, but focused intensely on our future. Our town has undergone a transformation over the last 8 years and we truly believe that “This is the Place…and Now is the Time”. Our Borough Website is designed to provide our residents, visitors, business owners and potential business owners with the information they need to fully appreciate all that Swedesboro has to offer.

I believe the quality of life in Swedesboro ranks the highest in Southern New Jersey and I am pleased that you have chosen our town as a place to live, start a business or visit. We have a great school system, a vibrant, recently renovated and expanded library and a downtown business district that is exploding with exciting new restaurants and shops. Lake Narriticon Park, also known as Swedesboro Lake, is another beautiful asset in our town. Two state-of-the-art dock systems have been installed. One is a kayak/canoe launching dock and the other is a fishing dock, complete with benches and rod holders. With our historic landmarks, tree lined neighborhoods and Lake Narriticon you will discover that this is truly a community, not just a place where people live.

We have a broad range of year-round activities for residents and visitors. “Blues Knite” in April, the “Outdoor Living and Garden Show” in May, Swedesboro Day, Dragon 5K Run and Car Show in September, the “Olde Kings Jazz Festival” in October, the “Christmas Parade” in November and our summer concert series “Dancing in The Streets”.

As Swedesboro maneuvers into the 21st Century, this former agricultural town is moving ahead with a transformation to a modern suburban town that respects our past while embracing the challenge of preparing for the future.

Please enjoy our website and let us know if we can make it better. As Mayor, I welcome you to our town and invite you to discover the many great things Swedesboro has to offer.

Thomas Fromm
Mayor of Swedesboro
