Welcome to Cedar Knolls
Rest, relaxation, and a slower pace in The Garden State
Conveniently located along the Garden State Parkway 35 miles west of New York City, Cedar Knolls is an easygoing, laidback community with small-town spirit, minus the “nosiness” which may come with sometimes living in a smaller community. A high number of nationally recognized shops, eateries, and other businesses are located close by, in addition to many owned by hardworking neighbors. Residents relish in their oversized yard space, without sacrificing easy access to high-paying jobs in Manhattan.
Cedar Knolls offers the best of casual New Jersey life and upscale northeastern flair. The Bagelry is a favorite spot among locals for hand-rolled bagels and creamy schmears, a staple in New Jersey cuisine. Fire Roasted Chicken & Grill offers homestyle chicken by quarter, half, and whole. For something on-the-go, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, and salads are popular offerings, coming in a plethora of flavors. More special occasions can be enjoyed at H2Ocean Restaurant & Raw Bar. A swanky, oceanic-themed site is the place to enjoy a romantic dinner over lobster bisque, crabcakes, fresh Maine lobster, and grade-A steaks. Shopping is a breeze in Cedar Knolls, thanks to several big-box brands located on the southern side of town. Old Navy, TJ Maxx, and HomeGoods are just a few options for retail therapy. Less than two miles away, an AMC Theater features leather recliners, discount matinees, and Tuesday pricing specials. More peaceful days can be enjoyed at Central Park on the other side of the Garden State Parkway. Fourth acres of heavily wooded tranquility serves as a favorite spot among locals for exercise, relaxation, and quality time with children. A small soccer field, ice rink, volleyball court, and 13 acres dedicated solely to active recreation are a few other things to love about this outdoor space. Altogether, locals enjoy an unparalleled level of relaxation and calm in their everyday lives. Friendly neighbors and an easygoing temperament have made this neighborhood one of the great hidden gems of The Garden State.
In addition to the several nearby high-performing public and private schools, Cedar Knolls is home to a number of special education campuses for those with special needs.
