Fair Haven, NJ

September 26, 2004

These photos were taken in Fair Haven, NJ, located between Red Bank and Rumson on the south bank of the Navesink River. 77 Acres of land on the south side of town were acquired by the borough in 1975 and became Fair Haven Fields, a Monmouth County Park. Those more interested in the location of Fair Haven Fields, click here. 37 acres of the property are designated for tennis, baseball, and soccer fields, but the remaining 40 acres has been set aside to remain virtually untouched except for a few benches, foot bridges, and walking paths. None of the photos' contents were altered from how I found them.
