Jackson Woods: where Nature meets the Arts
Jackson Woods Park was created in 1991 when a 13 acre farmhouse & wetlands property that had been slated for redevelopment was preserved as open space. Although preserved, the area was left unattended, becoming overgrown, and then further damaged by Super Storm Sandy.
In April 2018, a group of concerned citizens – the Friends of Jackson Woods – formed to revitalize the park to benefit the community. With support from the City of Long Branch and its mayor, as well as many local volunteer organizations, along with the leadership, passion and efforts of the Friends of Jackson Woods, that transformation is now well underway.
Our vision is to create a place where nature and the arts thrive together making a visit to Jackson Woods an experience to remember. We hope you enjoy your visit and return often to see the transformation unfold.
Here are some of our favorite things to see in the park
