Beaches and Recreation Programs
Toms River Township residents ages 62 and over may obtain a Senior ID/Beach pass by presenting proof of age. The photo ID provides lifetime access to Township beaches; a one time processing fee of $15 is required.
The Toms River Township beach badge is for Ortley Beach on the ocean and Shelter Cove on the bay. The badge does not include beaches in other towns such as Seaside Heights or Lavalette. Badges can be purchased at a discount rate beginning on April 3rd and ending the Monday of Memorial Day weekend each year. Badges can be purchased at the Recreation Administration Office, the Toms River Senior Center on Garfield Avenue, and at the beach during the season.
