Fisherman’s Cove
Manasquan Boro, Monmouth County, New Jersey
65 Acres

Realizing that Fisherman’s Cove was the last remaining open coastal area in the County, the Monmouth Conservation Foundation (MCF) moved quickly to assist in the purchase of the 65 acres bordering the Manasquan Inlet. Once State, County and local officials recognized that the property was worthy of preservation and protection a coalition was formed to assure its conservation. The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders took ownership of the property for use as a conservation area in July of 1995. Utilization of the property will include nature trails and programs, pedestrian access to the river, and observation blinds on the river.
