  • A friend and I was there to remind people about how awesome Gardner's Basin was when we used to have the free R&B and oldies concerts. It was filled with love for music and friendship. It was a place for families and friends to enjoy the vendors, setting up tents and chairs and barbecuing delicious foods while enjoying great entertainment. We're praying that they will bring the concerts back!
  • Gardner's basin is a hidden gem of AC. There is an aquarium, a couple of restaurants & some small vendor booths selling various items. In the near future, the AC boardwalk will completed all along the inlet connecting GB with the main boardwalk. It should be a great walk/bike ride (maybe tram service). In the meantime, the basin area is a fun way to spend a few relaxing hours (Gilchrists restaurant is great for breakfast - best blueberry pancakes in NJ), out of the hustle bustle of downtown AC.
  • A place to enjoy serenity. Nice views of the Brigantine bridge. Fishing can be done here as well.
  • We love to spend the day at the basin. Gotta get the seafood from Fish Heads, scrumptious.
  • Always a great spot for family or friends. Aquarium, Gilchrist, Back Bay Ale House are good all year round
