The park’s coastline overlooks Raritan Bay, offering a magnificent view of the New Jersey shoreline. Greenery and woodlands cover much of Conference House Park with several hiking and biking trails. There is a 3,000 sq. feet (280 sq. meters) turquoise roof pavilion on the west end of the beach, a strategic point for viewing across New Jersey. Constructed in 2002, the pavilion is a reconstruction of an earlier pavilion destroyed in a fire in 1963. Facilities at the park include a playground and a public launch site for canoes and kayaks.
