Surprising! Best Walking Parks in Ocean County


Nothing like a nice walk. It’s good for your mind and good for your heart. Walking is a fantastic way to exercise without the stress of “heavy” workouts. Let’s face it for some, these are just calm and scenic cardio workouts. So a nice pleasant walk allows you to see the sights of your neighborhood while doing a relaxing workout… so the best of both worlds.

According to Google, nearly 150 million adults now include walking in their active lifestyle. This shows how popular the “walk” has become. Once you decide you want to “walk” the next thing is where. Several times April and I decide to go out and take a tour of our neighborhood. We have our circuit and we make our way through our neighborhood. It’s quaint and relaxing… serves the purpose. There are times when we want to go out and go somewhere to walk around and enjoy new sights and sounds. That’s why I decided to create the BEST walking parks list, based on ratings and reviews on Bark.
