June 19 Update - Park to open July 3rd

We are working diligently to open by July 3, 2020 and we have many adjustments due to Social Distancing and COVID-19 mitigation policies.  An outline of these policies may be found in the Opening Release Document.  Should you have any additional questions or concerns, reach out to the Crystal Spring staff at

NJ Department of Health Guidelines and State Executive Orders that we are required to adhere to in order to open to the public.  Some of these restrictions and guidance include; 

  • Limited capacity and cash-less reservation systems are required; therefore, daily tickets will be limited to 250 patrons per day initially.  Tickets can be purchased online ONLY; there will be no tickets sold onsite at Crystal Springs.  As per previous communication, Season Passes are not available this year due to the capacity limits to the park.  Information regarding how to purchase daily tickets will be released shortly.
  • All chairs and picnic tables will be removed from the park.  Patrons are encouraged to bring their own chairs.  Shade is available on a first come, first served basis and there should be ample room for guests to spread out comfortably throughout the facility.

  • Brunswick Bay, Family Pool and Lap Pool will be the pools available and open beginning July 3rd.
