Springfield Township is a beautiful residential community located in Union County with a population of approximately 15,800. In 2010 New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Springfield in the Top 100 best places to live in New Jersey. Springfield is the home of the Baltusrol Golf Club which was the host to the 2005 PGA Championship and hosted the 2016 PGA Championship.
A number of major highways and roadways pass through Springfield, including Interstate 78, U.S. Route 22, Route 24, and Route 124, as well as CR 509 Spur and CR 577.
Some historical landmarks from the Revolution still stand: the Cannon Ball House built 1741, Springfield's First Presbyterian Church, and the statue of a Continental Soldier, which constitutes the smallest state park in New Jersey. The Township also operates a Jitney service to the Short Hills Train in the morning and afternoon/early evening.
Although there is no train station in Springfield, the Millburn and Short Hills New Jersey Transit stations are located nearby, although neither allows commuter-hour parking for out of town residents and very limited parking hours even on weekends. The closest stations that allow out-of-town residents
access to parking are Maplewood and Summit, although both also are full to capacity very early on weekdays.
The 70 provides access from the center of town to NJ Transit's Summit and Millburn stations; Eastbound it terminates at NJ Transit's Newark Penn Station with connections to Amtrak, NJTransit trains to New York Penn Station and to Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) service. The township also runs a jitney that operates on weekdays during morning and evening rush hours from the community pool to NJ Transit's Short Hills station. NJ Transit buses 65, 66 and 70 (to Newark), the 114 (to Midtown Manhattan's Port Authority Bus Terminal) and local service on the 52 route also run along the town's major roadways.
