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).

We are aware that the water bills that were sent out recently arrived in an envelope with a Seaside Heights return address. Water bills are mailed out through a third-party and we are working with the vendor to find out why this happened so we can prevent it in the future. Rest assured, the bills themselves are correct as is the remittance information on the bill.  We regret that this happened and we apologize for any inconvenience
