Recognized with awards from the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association, the Southern New Jersey Business People magazine and PlanSmart New Jersey, the route offers access to all residents of Delran to riverfront shopping, business and strolling opportunities. It is not only beautiful and convenient, but also unique.
Route 130 Diner
As long as you are cruising down Route 130, do not forget to stop at the Route 130 Diner, one of Delran’s most popular and most enduring culinary hot spots. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this charming homestyle restaurant is a classic in a state full of diner classics. Residents recommend the omelets and burgers, although local kids are partial to the Belgian waffles made New Jersey style: With lots of sugary whipped cream. The vinyl booths are comfy, and the coffee is always hot. No wonder Delran’s residents love it.
If you are not on the mood for a riverside stroll and summer water sports are not appealing, do not worry. Declan is also home to a number of community parks. City Park, which backs onto the Dredge Harbor Boat Center is a relaxing and quiet park perfect for a picnic or a family outing. With scenic views of Swedes Lake and the nearby Lake Lonnie, both areas are especially charming in the winter, when the water usually freezes and residents are known to strap on their ice skates, and make good use of the frozen expanse.
