The Ocean County Parks and Recreation has three parks which offer swimming facilities.  They are:

Ocean County Park in Lakewood
Berkeley Island County Park in Berkeley Township. 
A. Paul King County Park in Stafford Township (Manahawkin)

The first one has a beautiful, freshwater lake and sandy beach.  The second is on the Barnegat Bay, also with a sandy beach.  The third is a picturesque beach with freshwater lake and beach. All beaches are staffed with lifeguards from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily from mid-June until Labor Day (conditions permitting).  The best part of all is that there is never a charge to use County facilities!  All locations also have playgrounds, restrooms and picnic facilities.

Berkeley Island County Park - closed until further notice due to storm damage.
