If you’ve visited the Monmouth County shore area, chances are you’ve driven right past Maclearie Park on Highway 35. Maclearie Park is located at the Marina in Belmar, New Jersey. With a brand new playground, tennis courts and a picnic area, this park is definitely a great one for families. There is also children’s beach where you can enjoy the calm waters of the bay while watching boats and kayaks come in and out of the marina, as well as a small boardwalk along the water that is great for kids and strollers.

The Ed Brown playground, located at Maclearie Park, is one of the most exciting playgrounds my kids have been to recently. With a fun transportation theme, the kids will love bouncing from train to airplane, pretending they are the conductor or the pilot, ready for their next adventure. The added bonus is the waterfront location of the playground. The kids all loved watching the different boats come by the Marina and the cool breeze makes a hot day much more enjoyable.
