HOLMDEL, NJ: You can use common sense social distancing and have a great time at Cross Farm Park and many other local parks. Yes, the playground areas are closed, but the walkways and fields are open for passive recreation! You can have a pleasant walk/run, throw a ball, ride a bike, walk your dog... So, if you didn't already know: Yes, state and county parks are closed and many Municipal Parks are open. Click HERE for the park information for Holmdel. Click HERE  for Middletown Township Park information.  Click HERE for information about Colts Neck parks. It's fun to try a park you never have visited before...let's explore!

Note from the publisher: We had a great family outing in Cross Farm Park over the weekend. I realized afterwards on many social media comments that many folks in Holmdel don't know the municipal parks are open.
