Monmouth County Bucket List – Parks
Monmouth County is home some of the most beautiful land, landscape and parks around. If you want to make sure you've seen all our great county has to offer, we comprised a checklist of sorts for you.
There are some great parks in our area and we want to know how many of them you've visited or how many you need to make plans to get to soon.We got the help of the great Visit Monmouth website.
Here are the six Historic Sites & Park they highlight on the site. We left a check box in front of each name for your organizing convenience. Outside is a good place to be these days, so let's take advantage before it gets too cold.
[ ] Allaire State Park. What an amazing place this is for the whole family to enjoy. It's over 3000 acres and will transport you back to the 1700's. Visit the Historic Village at Allaire website.

I am happy to say that I can check 5 of the six off my list. I have never been to Walnford, but it sounds awesome. Of course with all that is going on, please check ahead for any COVID schedule changes or restrictions.
Here are just some more great places we may normally overlook as destinations, but as we stay close to home, they are great options. Don't let the decent weather fade! Get out there soon and enjoy some fresh air!
