Holmdel Park is one of Monmouth County's most popular locations for active recreation and nature appreciation. Acquired by the Park System in 1962, nearly one million visitors enjoy this 664-acre site yearly. This park features the David C. Shaw Arboretum, fishing, picnic areas, four tennis courts, two playgrounds, ice skating, sledding and 10 miles of trails - including a 1/2 mile paved loop linking the Pond View and Forest Edge areas of the park with group picnic facilities and playgrounds.
Historic Sites   
The park also features two historic sites - Historic Longstreet Farm and the Holmes-Hendrickson House.  Longstreet Farm is a living history farm where Park System staff recreates life as it was during the 1890s. Learn more about this site and see upcoming activities. The historic Holmes-Hendrickson House, at 62 Longstreet Road, is operated by the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA).

Walking trails wind through the shady woods and rolling hills. There is a fitness trail too. The rolling terrain will challenge some hikers. Cyclists and equestrians are asked to use the trails in the Ramanessin section but must remain on the roads in the Northern portion in this popular park. Enter from Longstreet Road. (9.49 miles of trails)
