Jakes Branch County Park offers a balance of active and passive recreation opportunities. The nature center in the park will highlight the beauty, history, and natural surroundings of the Pine Barrens. Breathtaking views of the seemingly endless Pine Barrens can be taken in from the observation deck perched atop the nature center. Jakes Branch will also offer opportunities for soccer, baseball/softball, tennis, and basketball in addition to the miles of nature trails laid out by the staff of the Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation. The tot lot, picnic grove and open playing fields are sure to appeal to children of all ages.

Back in 2011, we visited Jakes Branch on a VERY cold and windy day. Though we did not get to explore the park, we loved their nature center.
