Sprayground FAQ  

The Sprayground is currently closed for reconstruction.

Renovation Update:

Work continues on the reconstruction of the Sprayground. We are hopeful that the project will be completed before the end of the summer so visitors will be able to enjoy the improvements. Thank you for your patience and please check back here for periodic updates.  

In the meantime, if you are looking for other ways to cool off this summer, check out the Open Swim schedule at Fort Monmouth Recreation Area, Tinton Falls, or hit the beach at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park, Long Branch.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. (posted 6/16/16)

Here are details on the Renovation: 

Work on the Sprayground is underway! Renovations include updating the spray features; replacing the existing surface with a colorful bright blue one; and adding new features like “raining leaves”, domes of cascading water, and a series of high to low play troughs. The pumping system will also be replaced for improved water filtration.  We look forward to unveiling all of the fun and fantastic new features our Sprayground will offer.

Here are some images of our plans:
