The Monmouth County Park system is often thought to be one of the finest in the country–and with good reason. The parks are meticulously maintained; they are stunningly beautiful, and they are brimming with activities for all ages. So not too long ago I paid
a visit to Thompson Park in Lincroft. Thompson Park which includes the former home of Geraldine Thompson, and now serves as the Thompson Park Visitor’s Center. The park, which was established in 1968 totals 667 acres, of which 215 were donated by the estate go Geraldine Thompson. The park, which is truly magnificent, features the Marlu Lake (pictured below) is not to be missed.
