This very nice lake has lots of waterfowl, numerous bridges, and miles of shoreline to enjoy in the midst of the bustling north Jersey shore. It looks like an octopus and, with the Atlantic Ocean only 500 feet from its head, I suppose the shape is symbolic; at the very least it’s an interesting coincidence. Deal Lake interweaves its tentacles through four towns, the most notable of which is Asbury Park on the south side. Although only 158 acres in size, the lake has 7-plus miles of shoreline waiting to be paddled. The variety of native and planted tree and shrub species provide spectacular spring blooms and fall colors.
