  • This is a wonderful place to go to get a good feel for local Jersey Shore history and ecology. The great trails for hiking and jogging. Also wonderful opportunities for bird watching and other animals. The butterfly garden is beautiful it is a real treat.

  • Awesome park! Great for walking or biking. Excellent views.
  • Beautiful place to spend the day! So much nature to discover. I loved it!

I love it there! It's always a great time!
