With its glassy fishing pond, wide open fields and first-rate playgrounds, Monmouth County Park System's Holmdel Park…More is the township's gem. More than a million people come each year to enjoy family time and recreational sports at this public park . Yet it can also be be a place of serenity. Walking the well-marked trails in the quiet woods, listening to the rustle of leaves and singing birds among the towering trees, is a peaceful experience.
The 565-acre free park features Historic Longstreet Farm, an Arboretum, fishing, tennis courts, two playgrounds and in the wintertime, ice skating and sledding trails. There are more than 10 miles of well-maintained paths. Stroller-pushers will prefer the half-mile paved loop linking the pond and playground. Fitness seekers will head up the hills to the shady woods and rolling hills for a energetic challenge. Everyone loves the Marsh Walk, a boardwalk-style journey over the wet forest floor.
