Playground with water features was named "Runner Up" as the "Best Playground Worth Traveling to" by Time-Out New York, this exciting playground features climbing equipment and slides, water and sand play, a pretend boat hull, and benches. Open all year, but water features are turned off seasonally.

From Time-Out New York: "Especially in warm weather, when the park's elaborate sprinkler system provides kids with a thorough soaking (as well as a canal to paddle in), this riverside playground is a paradise."

Viewing scopes at the end of the pier offer views of passing watercraft and the New Jersey shoreline.
