    Just a great park along the south side of the Manasquan River. Nice place to go to relax & enjoy its surrounding views. You can hang out in the sun or stay in a shaded area. Plenty of benches and a small building displaying some of the towns history with pictures, articles....etc. There is a pavilion and restrooms, too.
    When they have festivals there....totally top notch. Such as the Blues & Jazz festival last summer, 2012.
    Plenty of places to park if the parking areas are filled. Just drive, perhaps, a block or two away. Very short walk from local...Read More

Plenty of places to park if the parking areas are filled. Just drive, perhaps, a block or two away. Very short walk from local streets. I believe this is known to be a 'passive' park. You can bring young children there and typically they won't find themselves dodging soccer balls or baseballs. Pt. Pleasant has many other fields and school yards for those activities. One of the reasons I moved here back in 1986 is so my 2 young boys ( at the time) could go to school here. Great, friendly people live in Point Pleasant Boro.....or, to be fair, *most* of the people here are like that. ;-)
There are picnic areas & grills for a BBQ. Also a walking pier & bocce ball court...along with a large playground. During the warmer months, you'll get to watch some nice boats passing by on the river.
It's also very close to the ocean and boardwalk at Point Pleasant Beach and Bay Head. And if you're lost or need any help, the Point Pleasant Police are great. They're very polite and do a superb job for keeping our community safe.
