LACEY — There's a new way to beat the heat this summer at the Jersey Shore with an inflatable water park opening in Ocean County.

The attraction installed at Lake Barnegat has a "soft opening" set for Saturday, June 22, with a ribbon cutting ceremony next Saturday, June 29, at noon, according to township administrator Veronica Laureigh.

Admission to the inflatable water park will be $10 an hour for Lacey residents who already have a season beach badge (which is $5).

For non-residents visiting the township, the hourly fee to use the course is $15.

The water park is for use by swimmers ages 8 and older, with a minimum height requirement, Laureigh said.

Life vests are required and are provided by the township at the course.

The township bought the inflatable equipment from Commercial Recreation Specialists.
