We brought our two grandchildren under five here and they loved it. Clean, not overly crowded on a beautiful Tuesday evening on the Jersey Shore. Street parking takes credit cards. Friday night and weekends slightly higher. Monday -Thursday is best.

What kind of shore town closes the beach? That's right, security at entrances at 5:30pm on a Saturday. No entrance. "New Jenk's policy." Ridiculous.More

It's very family oriented! Great place to have fun and the food is great. I've been there 3 times in a month and can't get enough!

The boardwalk is too small for the amount of foot traffic that they get. Some of the games are over priced and hokey. This is the allure of a boardwalk, go forewarned and expect your pocket to be lighter.

Been going to PPB and Jenkinsons since I was 6 years old, and now I get to experience it through the eyes of my 6 year old! Such a family friendly place. Rides, games, food. It is highly recommended for anyone vacationing in that area!!!

Visited every summer for the last decade, smaller amusement park and boardwalk than Seaside but cleaner, has numerous showers to clean off after enjoying the ocean (which Seaside doesn't), very family oriented, and weekly fireworks are very good - also a lot less likely to...More

Visited the beach today off the boardwalk and walked through the Boardwalk. Not what I like in a day out but kids happy with rides and fun. Beach is fantastic and we loved it.
