Holmdel Park is one of the Monmouth County Park System's most popular locations for active recreation and nature appreciation. Acquired by the Park System in 1962, just shy of one million visitors enjoy this 565 acre site yearly. This park features Historic Longstreet Farm, the David C. Shaw Arboretum, fishing, picnic areas, 4 tennis courts, 2 playgrounds, ice skating, sledding and 10 miles of trails - including a 1/2 mile paved loop linking the Pond View and Forest Edge areas of the park with group picnic facilities and playgrounds.

The park also features two historic sites - Historic Longstreet Farm and the Holmes-Hendrickson House. Longstreet Farm is a living history farm where Park System staff recreates life as it was during the 1890s. The historic Holmes-Hendrickson House, at 62 Longstreet Road, is operated by the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA).

  • Love this park. 2 playgrounds, lots of trails, a pond, and livestock. It's easy to fish here with lots of spots around the pond, but finding an area in the shade that is available can be tricky. Always plenty of parking, but not always in the area we want to visit. There is a nice paved path for bikes and in the winter they have sledding. There is a covered pavilion with picnic tables and 2 locations with restrooms.
  • Holmdel Park is a beautiful well-kept park and has more than 10 miles of trails. You can run or walk on the gravel or paved path or venture in the woods on the dirt path to go hiking and enjoy nature. The trails are well known to cross country runners. It’s also a fun place to walk your dog and I met some dogs along the way and, of course, I had to take pictures of them. The Historic Longstreet Farm is from the late 19th century. I only saw two cows outside the barn while I was there. There’s something to do here for everyone or you can relax and have a picnic. It’s a fun way to spend the day with family and friends and perhaps learn some history along the way. Definitely will be coming back here. Fun Fact: The initial park land was established in 1962 and dedicated to the Citizens of Monmouth County in 1964.
