Crystal Springs Aquatic Center, East Brunswick, NJ

Dunham’s Corner Road at Church Lane, East Brunswick, NJ.
Update: We finally visited Crystal Springs Aquatic Center and it is amazing. Although it is not like a Sesame Place or a Great Adventure, it is the place to go if you want to enjoy just the waterpark attractions and not have to deal with the crowds especially on the weekdays. We chose to visit after 4pm on a monday, and it was the perfect time. There are many lifeguards staffing the place and we were able to get pizza delivered, since they allow outside food (you can also wheel a cooler in as well). The lazy river was great, and the kids also enjoyed the lily pads that you navigate across by grabbing the netting (not sure what you call that). To enjoy the water slides you have to be 48″ and above, but I thnk the best part is that you can set your chair in the water and let your toddler enjoy the slides. (In order for them to do the baby slide though, they have to go alone, no adults allowed to go down, but you can be on the bottom) They control the baby/toddler area very well. I can[‘t wait to come back with my 2yo. What a great place! They also have nice areas with tents for shade.

This one isn’t free, but I’ve heard allocades (yes I mean accolades, tired I was) from moms in the park the other day.  It’s the first municipal water park in NJ, and has water slides, splash pools and a lazy river.  Here is the direct link, I haven’t personally visited, but will post pics when I do!
