Now that the weather's getting nice (but still sometimes a little chilly for the beach) I got to thinking about the park that I love the most and wondered where your favorite spots are in the state.

Growing up (for the most part) in Old Bridge, I fell in love with Holmdel Park at a young age.  In all the states I've lived in and in all my travels, Holmdel Park remains my favorite spot, not just because it has some great memories, especially from high school days, but because I think it has one of the most beautiful beechwood forests I've ever seen.

So obviously, the title of this blog is a little off--Holmdel Park is my favorite park of any I've ever been to anywhere, and probably will always be.

I'd love to know what New Jersey parks are special to you and what you love about them.
