Seaside Park Beach and Boardwalk

A quieter family resort.

Seaside Park is the place to go for quiet sunbathing, relaxing or eating lunch on its many boardwalk benches, or strolling along the water’s edge.  On the north end of the boardwalk is where you’ll find a small section of food, games, and the Funtown Pier Amusements.

Seasonal beach badges for Seaside Park are now $45. The price is raised to $50 on June 15. Seasonal badges for seniors 65 and older cost $20. Badges can be purchased at the Bathhouse on the corner of ‘N Street’ and Ocean Avenue Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Daily badges are $10.

The beach opens and is staffed with lifeguards on Memorial Day weekend. Lifeguards are on duty weekends only until June 25, when daily staffing begins. Restrooms are located at the Bathhouse.

Metered parking is available in lots along the oceanfront and certain streets. Beginning May 16, meters are enforced 24 hours daily. Lot 1 is located on North Ocean Avenue between Farragut and Stockton Avenues. Cars are allowed up to 7 1/2 hours of parking time. Meters in lot 1 accept quarters and dollar coins. Lots 2 and 3, as well as street meters, accept only quarters and have a maximum parking time of 4 hours. All parking spots in town cost $1.50 per hour.  Be sure to read the signs. Certain spots require head-in parking.

No dogs are allowed on the beach or boardwalk. For more beach information, call (732) 793-3700.

Someone recently told me that it's now illegal to smoke on both the boardwalk and the beach when in in Seaside Park~ is this true?

Hope so. The beach isn' t one big ashtray.

I'm an ex-smoker that puffed away for 52 years and so I know what it can do to one's health; I deeply regret having that nasty habit and I am now paying the price for it because I now suffer from cardiac problems & COPD from all those years of smoking 2 packs a day! Yes~ smoking is bad and it ought to be done away with in the right way by banning the sales of all tobacco products to begin with. However~ at the same time, I am against the fact that both New Jersey & America both insist on telling you that it's illegal to smoke when they continue to allow a product to be sold in order to benefit from its tax income, while knowing all along that it kills people?

In regards to the smoking ban in Seaside Park: It's unfortunate, but slowly but surely, this great Country that I love is becoming a "Police State"! Put yourself in this scenario and then answer the following question honestly: You are a soldier that has recently returned from Iraq after fighting in the name of "Freedom," and as you are enjoying a legal-to-buy-smoke as you fish, some Summer-rent-a-cop in Seaside Park tells you: "Hey~ Put that out; I'm writing you a summons because you can't smoke here!" What would tell him? Most likely, your answer would be censored here on Patch! It's a shame but way-to-often these days, we are being told that we can't smoke here; we can't pray here; we can't fish over there; we cannot solicite & sell our product to earn an honest buck; No enjoying a campfire on the beach; No Skateboarding; No throwing of Frisbees or footballs; No Pets Allowed... and so on and so on and so on! Wake up my fellow Americans~ Our "rights" are constantly being taken away~ stand up for what you believe and speak your mind and let your elected officials know that you are not going to follow along with the rules that they dictate like a bunch of cattle heading to the slaughterhouse! Pretty soon they're going to be telling us that we can't take a S**t without a license to do so or without their permission!

Gino: I agree with you completely about how some of the restrictions on the beach are ridiculous. No this - no that. It's like you just have a choice to sit on the beach like a rock or put your toe in the water. It's a shame, especially when you pay big $ for that "privilege".As an ex-smoker myself, I sympathize with your view on smoking, but I really hate it when the smokers leave butts on the beach or you get a lung full of smoke when you're trying to breath in some fresh ocean air. I finally quit (cold turkey is the only way) because I got tired of looking for a place that allowed smoking. Now with the money I save in smokes, I can buy a beach badge!

Good for you that you quit! I dis-like having stinky cigarette butts on the beach too, but instead of a total smoking ban in parks, and on beaches and boardwalks, there ought to be designated smoking areas for those who choose to be stupid enough to want to continue to smoke. In addition to that, anyone caught littering beaches (and roadways for that matter) with their cigarette butts should be fined. Littering laws here in New Jersey are way too lame; in California, littering anywhere and especially the tossing of a cigarette butt out of your car window will get you a whopping $1,000.00 fine!

That is a good idea. It should be easy enough to do. I do know how hard it is to quit and agree with you that it's crazy to sell cigs and at the same time punish people for smoking. No sense! Money, money, money. That's why.

Yes, you hit the nail right on the head; as always~ it's all about MONEY!
