The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.
Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

Beautiful dunes. Beautiful sand.
We’ll let our readers describe its appeal: “Very clean, perfect size.” “Quiet, spread out, great sand bar.” “It’s my favorite because it’s mostly residential, but close to the fun.” “Access to Island Beach is a nice plus.” “Seaside Park is the best. Hands down. The south end around 5th and 7th avenues is the best. Parking is more easily accessible.” “You have the crabbing pier down the street at 5th Ave. and another at 14th. You have the rec field with baseball, basketball and tennis courts. Also a playground and lots of places to grab a bite.” “The northern end is where you want to be if you like to people watch and see action.”
