5 Great Things to do in Toms River this Spring
1. Take a Walk
More than just a storage container for 1 billion gallons of water, the Brick Reservoir offers recreation opportunities that the whole family will enjoy. It has a 1.6-mile-long walking trail around the reservoir. It even comes with water stations and doggie bags for convenient clean-up after your pup. The atmosphere at the Reservoir is peaceful and serene complete with beautiful gardens and has benches and gazebos at two separate fishing stations.

2. Go for a Bike Ride
Cattus Island Park, located in Toms River, offers a wide variety of amenities from birdwatching to bike riding. Springtime is the best season to seek out returning migratory songbirds and witness Osprey birds building their nests from the observation area. The Butterfly Garden Attracts, which attracts native butterflies, is one of the park’s most popular attractions during spring months. The park welcomes bikers on 7 miles of unpaved trails which lead directly to the beach and the 1500-foot boardwalk trail allows both strollers and wheelchairs. Find out more about Cattus Island Park on their website.
3. Enjoy the View
Known as “Old Barney,” The Barnegat Lighthouse sits at the northern tip of Long Beach Island and offers a panoramic view of Barnegat Bay for those who make the climb. With 217 steps to the top of the lighthouse, visitors will find themselves surrounded by a beautiful park that provides many opportunities to watch nature, walk along the waterway, have a picnic, and hike the 1/5-mile long, self-guided Maritime Forest Trail loop.
4. Visit the Aquarium
The Jenkinson’s Aquarium is open all year featuring a diverse collection of life from aquatic habitats. Schedule your trip around their feeding schedule and even start your day with the keepers for breakfast so the kids can ask questions and talk about the animals.
5. Head to the Park
Ocean County Park sits on 323 acres of land and features playgrounds, a large swimming lake, fishing, tennis courts, beach volleyball, a driving range and much more. Once a part of John D. Rockefeller’s vacation estate, the park also features an Amphitheatre, large picnic areas can be reserved for parties for up to 700 people and a vast 5-acre off-leash dog park.
