As you walk along the beach of Josephine Haron Park, be sure to go and say hi to Lucy! Who is Lucy, you ask? Lucy is a six story high wooden elephant and a National Historic Landmark. Before Lucy was declared a landmark, she was initially built to attract land buyers. It seemed to work and Lucy was a part of a hotel, a private mansion and a tavern and damaged so badly that if the authorities hadn’t intervened and declared it a landmark, Lucy would not be known to us all. Today, daily tours are held where you will learn all about Lucy and get to climb on top of her for a spectacular 360 degrees view.

  • Wonderful experience. Lucy now a place on my fridge (magnet) and we plan of paying her visit now n then. Something different and extraordinary to do with kids n family. Stairways are pretty narrow so not for all seniors. Got have good knees and medium body type! Nice experience with breathtaking views at the top.

  • This was a cute slice of Jersey Shore history that was lots of fun for our kids (4 + 6). Parking was a little bit of a hassle; they have a private lot, but it only holds a dozen cars or so... Once we got parked, though, the semi-guided tour of Lucy was great! The guides bring each group of about 20 up into Lucy, show a video about Lucy's history, and then let you roam around for about a half hour, waiting to answer any questions until they usher everyone back out for the next tour. The view from Lucy's back is pretty deceptively amazing. We could see much further around than I thought we might have, and being high up on top of a huge elephant was very exciting for our kids... Good views THROUGH the railings, even if you can't see over them :)

  • Waited many years to get here. Nice short tour by well informed guide. Staff very nice. Tour fee slightly high for a short tour but happy to support keeping this small piece of roadside America alive. The video that is part of the tour shows a great but sad story of how Lucy was almost lost to neglect but fortunately the right folks came together to save her.

  • Not much to it. Its cute for what it is. Lucy is older than the statue of liberty and Eiffel tower and the worlds largest elephant landmark so I had to see the oldest roadside attraction in America. Expect parking issues during summer peak hrs. Short tour, a video on a tiny screen inside the elephant and photo ops of beach at the top were highlights. *No elevator,all stairs.

  • Lucy is a great experience and a MUST if your planning to visit Jersey. It’s really breath taking and really cool. It’s a giant elephant what else can I say. Also the town is very nice too.
