Named after American President Andrew Jackson, Jackson Township was incorporated in 1844 when the area was still considered part of Monmouth County.  It wasn’t until 1850 when Jackson Township became part of Ocean County.  The borders of Jackson were also shifted in these early years to form a portion of Plumsted Township, but it remains the largest municipality in the County, nonetheless.

Today, thrill seekers flock to Jackson to visit  Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari Park  – the 2nd largest theme park in the World, following Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Great Adventure first opened its doors in 1974 and has gone through its fair share of ownership changes over the years, however that didn’t deter its loyal following of adrenaline junkies.  Despite who was in charge behind the scenes, one thing always remained consistent…Great Adventure’s ability to constantly innovate and push the limits with its heart-pumping thrill rides! If you visit the park in October, be sure to check out “Fright Fest”, a favorite event among locals.

Jackson isn’t all about high-speed coasters and cotton candy, though!  Jackson Premium Outlets is home to some of the best shopping the county has to offer.  The plaza is conveniently located just minutes from Great Adventure and consists of 50+ storefronts so you can shop the day away.

Looking for an activity that won’t break your wallet?  Check out the Jackson Recreation Department’s website for a list of parks and upcoming activities.  Picnic areas, playgrounds and a skatepark are just a few of the things you’ll find at these public parks.
