How/when do I buy a beach badge and what beaches does it cover?

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.
