    Merion Gardens is located in Salem County at the southeast edge of New Jersey. We are within a mile of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, NJ Turnpike, US Rte. 40 and I-295, but we retain the best of this rural county's qualities—an appreciation for each of our resident’s unique qualities and needs. Locally owned, our residents are our neighbors and family. We have wide halls, two interior courtyards with gardens, a variety of fun and stimulating activities and staff that truly cares. One resident recently said that she didn't like to go out of the building because she always had the best time here--"This is the happiest place for old folks."
