ASBURY PARK— The Monmouth County Park System is now accepting enrollment into its After School Recreation Program.  Offered at the Coastal Activity Center in Asbury Park since 2003, the After School Recreation Program provides a safe and fun place for children in kindergarten through fifth grade to play and learn.  The program is offered from 3-6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, September 13-December 9.  (An additional session starts in January.)  Activities include gym games, arts & crafts, and themed activities, events and parties.  A strong focus is placed on helping children learn to play cooperatively, respect each other, and learn new games and skills.

The cost is $25 per child per session.  Please note that transportation is not provided.  For more information or to register, contact Courtney Bison at 732-460-1167, ext. 21, or [email protected].  Registration is also accepted on site during program hours and remains open through the session. 

There are still some positions available for staff to assist in the After School Recreation Program. The Park System is now accepting applications. Offering flexibility and training, these positions are a great opportunity to earn money while picking up valuable job skills and work experience.  Applicants must be 18 or older.  Additional details and applications are available on the Jobs in the Parks page at   

The Coastal Activity Center and its After School Recreation Program are just some of the ways that the Monmouth County Park System strives to meet the needs of the county’s urban population.  The Park System also offers a Recreation Assistance Program which provides programs at a discounted rate.
