The parks do not belong to one town or to one county. High Point, Island Beach, Monmouth Battlefield, Liberty State Park are properties in which every citizen has a vested interest. A visit inspires love of New Jersey, begets contentment, engenders pride of possession, contains the antidote for restlessness (and pandemic fatigue). They are better citizens with a keener appreciation of the privilege of living who have toured the parks.
