Self-guided Mp3 Bike/Walking Tour in Belmar

Background

New Jersey Water Savers partnered with the Belmar Environmental Commission to sponsor an 11-mile walk-bike-drive tour that has seventeen (17) “points of interest” highlighting the ecology and history of the area. Several points of interest include, two rain gardens, the Magical Garden co-op irrigation efficiency demonstration site, the low flow bath facilities at the beach, and the bathroom retrofit project at the Belmar Elementary School.  The Mp3 tour is a sustainable way to not only reinforce the value of natural resources, but to help highlight the downtown redevelopment of this shore community.

How is this tour promoted?

Information about the tour is provided in the welcome packets for marina patrons and summer renters.  Belmar Borough has also advertised with the local library, surrounding restaurants, retailers, and bed-and-breakfast owners.  The local library has Mp3 players to borrow, and the tour is available for download from the Belmar Borough website.
