You can even stand under the famous Tipping Teacup! Plus, the water features are spread out, giving everyone plenty of room to let loose.

Local Tip: Adults can have a great time at the water park, too! Bring a cooler with snacks and drinks and lounge in a lawn chair while the little ones play.

Mini golf is a quintessential summer activity at the Jersey Shore. After a few hours in the water, challenge your family to a round or two on the Splash Park’s 18-hole golf course. You can even uncover a bit of history; each hole features a fact from Asbury Park’s fabled past. Your kids will love tackling the obstacles and trying for a hole-in-one!
