Ocean County is the second largest in the State in terms of size and one of four New Jersey counties which border the Atlantic Ocean. Toms River serves as the County Seat and is centrally located within Ocean County. The County is in close proximity to two of the Nation’s largest metropolitan centers, New York City approximately 60 miles to the north and Philadelphia roughly 50 miles to the west. In addition, Atlantic City is located approximately 50 miles to the south of the County Seat. These metropolitan areas are easily accessible to Ocean County via several major highways and public transportation.

Despite the large growth in population and employment, Ocean County maintains a vast amount of protected open space which will ensure the balanced land use of the area in the future. Much of the area west of the Garden State Parkway contains large tracts of State Parks, Forests and Wildlife Management Areas. In addition, approximately 20,000 acres east of the Parkway are protected under the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge.

The Barnegat Bay and Little Egg Harbor, which stretch nearly the entire north-south length of the County, were recently added to the US National Estuary Program and will be the subject of continuing environmental protection efforts. In the northwest portion of the County, active farmland is being preserved through the County Farmland Preservation Program. In addition, the Ocean County Parks Department maintains an active capital program for parkland acquisition and development to ensure that a variety of recreation opportunities are in close proximity to residents throughout Ocean County. As always, the coastal beaches of Ocean County are foremost among the County’s attractions and continue to draw thousands of seasonal visitors to the area each year.
