Located in the Lincroft section of Monmouth County, Thompson Park is a beautiful place for visitors, with 667 acres of space. There are 14 miles of multiple use trails, including a 4.9 mile paved section. There is also a playground, a lake for fishing, tennis courts, picnic facilities, and an off-leash dog area.

 

The playground at Thompson Park features two separate areas: one section for toddlers and preschoolers, and another section for the older kids.
