Ocean Township is a township in Ocean County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 8,332,[9][10][11] reflecting an increase of 1,882 (+29.2%) from the 6,450 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 1,034 (+19.1%) from the 5,416 counted in the 1990 Census.[19] The 2010 population was the highest recorded in any decennial census.

History[edit]

Ocean Township was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 13, 1876, from portions of both Lacey Township and Union Township (now Barnegat Township). Portions of the township were taken to create Long Beach Township (March 23, 1899) and Island Beach (June 23, 1933).[20]

Waretown (with a 2010 Census population of 1,569[21]) is a census-designated place and unincorporated community located within Ocean Township.[22][23][24] All of Ocean Township is commonly referred to as "Waretown" by local residents.[25][26] The local custom is so widespread that it surprises some new residents that the official name is Ocean Township. Non-residents have been known to confuse Ocean Township with the Ocean Township of Monmouth County. There was a petition drive in 2006 to get a name change to Township of Waretown on the ballot but it failed to obtain enough signatures to get on the ballot.[27]

Geography[edit]

Ocean Township is located at 39°47′07″N 74°13′04″W / 39.78527°N 74.217652°W / 39.78527; -74.217652 (39.78527,-74.217652). According to the United States Census Bureau, the township had a total area of 32.044 square miles (82.993 km2), of which, 20.555 square miles (53.238 km2) of it is land and 11.489 square miles (29.756 km2) of it (35.85%) is water.[1][2] The township is located within the New Jersey Pine Barrens.[28]
