    If you enjoy the boardwalk and beaches in Seaside Park and use your smartphone, you’ll no longer have to worry about cellular data charges. 

    Borough officials announced a free wifi program yesterday on the boardwalk at Lafayette Avenue. 

    “Need to do some work while on the beach? Trying to use less data? Bring your laptop, tablet, phone, kindle and hook up and enjoy fast speed internet,” a borough official posted on the municipality’s Facebook page

    Anyone interested in accessing the service must select “connectedseasidepark.”

    The Seaside Park boardwalk runs from Porter Avenue at the Seaside Heights border to 14th Avenue at the Berkeley Township border. Designated public beach access is between Stockton Avenue to the north and 14th Avenue to the south.
