Lakewood, NJ 08701

This magnificent facility in Lakewood has a rich and fascinating history. Ocean County Park was originally part of Financier John D. Rockefeller''s vacation estate. White pine, Norway spruces, hemlock and other unique specimen trees, now mature, were imported by Rockefeller from all over the country. Tennis and picleball courts, open play fields, and even a driving range, all free of charge, appeal to adults of all ages, and children will delight in using the playgrounds or swimming in the large, clean swimming lake on hot summer days. Warm weather isn''t the only time to enjoy this park, however. Transformed into a lovely and silent winter wonderland after a snowfall, it''s a great site for cross-country skiing. Of course, there is no charge for casual use of the park, the beach or its other many facilities.

Ocean County Park has a large, accessible picnic facility. Reservations are available for a nominal fee for up to 600 persons. Call 1-732-506-9090 a minimum of three weeks prior to the requested date for more information. These sites fill up fast, so don''t wait too long to make a reservation!
