Bayshore Waterfront Park Activity Center
This park is also home of the Bayshore Waterfront Park Activity Center (Seabrook-Wilson House), one of the oldest surviving houses in the region. This large frame building, dating back to the early 1700's, was constructed in several phases over the course of two hundred years. The Park System acquired the building from Middletown Township in 1998. The building has been fully restored and now hosts Park System nature and history programs. Most programs require pre-registration. Upcoming programs at Bayshore Waterfront Park may be found be using our program search tool here
The building is open from 1-4pm on Sunday afternoons, now through October. To arrange a visit at other times, please call 732-787-3033, ext. 2. Inside, visitors can enjoy exhibits about the ecology of the Sandy Hook Bay, the history of the house within the greater Port Monmouth community, and the connection between them.
