Welcome!

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).

From the State of New Jersey:

We’re expanding the discounts available through the PPE Access Program.

Starting tomorrow (November 24th) all approved organizations with 100 or fewer employees can purchase PPE through the program at a 65% discount. The 65% discount will be on top of the 10% discount already available to all New Jersey businesses and non-profits. In addition, the per-company discount caps will increase from $500 to $1,000 for organizations located in one of New Jersey’s 715 Opportunity Zone eligible census tracts and from $400 to $800 for all other approved organizations.

All additional small business discounts will now expire on December 10th, regardless of when the organization first applied.

Already approved?

All organizations approved before Tuesday, November 24th, (including those who apply today), will automatically have their existing retaileraccounts updated to reflect these changes. The 65% discounts will only be eligible for purchases on or after November 24th. All purchases made before November 24th (including today) will be at the 10% + 25% discounted rate.

The Water Department will be conducting the semi-annual flushing of its water distribution system on Tuesday, October 13th through Friday, October 23rd.  Residents may notice a temporary discoloration of their water or a slight decrease in water pressure as a result of opening the hydrants.  Flushing the system twice per year improves the quality of the water and tests the fire hydrants for proper operation. If you have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 732-793-5100. We apologize for any inconvenience. (EW)
