Manasquan Reservoir is the jewel in the great green belt stretching through the center of Howell. Consisting of thousands of acres of land owned by the State, County and Municipal government, this lush green mosaic of open space provides leisure and recreational activities for residents of every age group all year long. The components that make up this Green Way include the Manasquan Reservoir and the Howell Golf course, administered by the Monmouth County Park System, Oak Glen Park, the Howell Township Municipal Complex and the Bear Swamp natural area, under the direction of Howell Township, and the State's Allaire State Park. All this is just a stone's throw from the intersection of U.S. Highway I-195, connecting the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike with U.S. Hwy. 9.
