Berkeley Island County Park


25 acres
399 Brennan Concourse,
Berkeley Township, NJ


Situated on a scenic peninsula jutting out into the calm waters of Barnegat Bay, Berkeley Island County Park's location provides possibly the best view of the Bay in Ocean County. It also features a family-oriented beach, complete with warm sand and protected bay bathing. The crabbing/fishing pier at the park is one of the County's most popular. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day sunning, swimming, or crabbing from the 100' pier. Berkeley Island County Park is also the park location for the Annual Beach Bash.

Berkeley Island County Park is currently closed due to extensive damage and erosion from Superstorm Sandy.

100% of the park's infrastructure was impacted by the storm, and safety issues have prevented the park from being reopened. As a result, a complete redevelopment of the park is necessary. Ocean County is preparing to review design proposals for the park redevelopment project.

For the past year, the Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation has been working with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Barnegat Bay Partnership and Stevens Institute of Technology to incorporate new design and construction strategies including the use of living shorelines. These cutting-edge ideas will be implemented at the park in order to stabilize the shoreline during future storms while also providing habitat, improved water quality, and overall aesthetics.
