2020 The beach and boardwalk will open with a reduced footprint starting on 5/23/2020. When there is good weather we will have at least one concession stand open. When the weather is good, waterslides are open 11:00-5:00 as well as several kiddie rides. The olympic pool, mini golf, playground, cafe, banquet rooms and arcade are closed for the summer. We anticipate that we will often close our gates on weekends to cars and walk in patrons when we reach our new lowered capacity so don’t recommend that you come here from far. Earlier arrival is recommended. If you do visit, all swimming is at your own risk. You should maintain 6 feet of distance from all others. Maintain 15 feet between beach blankets. 5 people maximum per group (same household) Stay to your right on the boardwalk and all walkways. Wear face covering where close contact, and always at concessions, service areas, restrooms and attractions, unless you have health concerns or are under 2 years old. If you don’t feel well, please stay home. If you develop symptoms while here, please go home. Do not litter..please protect our staff. We value you and want to do all we can to keep everyone safe
HALF-MILE “SUGAR-SAND” BEACH…AND BOARDWALK
First and foremost our main attraction is one of the most lovely beaches in the Northeast! A half a mile of wide pristine “sugar-sand” beach gives you and the family plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your day in the sun. C’mon in… the water’s fine… and so is that sand. Build a castle… sculpt to your heart’s content… OR… just lay your towel out and bask on its meticulously-groomed comfort!
Along the side of the boardwalk opposite the beach, you’ll find all the rest Ocean Beach Park has to offer including a nature trail, picnic area, playground, free kiddie sprayground, Olympic size pool, triple waterslide, mini golf course, kiddie rides, gift shop, Boardwalk Creamery, Sandbar Café, and Boardwalk Galley. Check out our entertainment schedule for nightly events!
Relive your own childhood as you watch your kids enjoy all the lovingly restored, old-time, kiddy rides. From the classic and graceful carousel, a little train ride, to the rest of the rides, which consist of all those you most fondly remember…the little bumble-bee-painted flyers…the kid-sized spinners…the tiny cars for their first “driving experience”. We’ve expanded to include some grown- up rides as well, including those old favorites, The Scrambler and The Octopus! AND…on Monday nights, there is still a special price for kiddy rides.
For the kids of all ages, Ocean Beach boasts a wonderful arcade, where, again, you can relive a little nostalgia, with Skee-Ball…winning tickets you collect against a wide variety of prizes for which they can be redeemed.
We have a fine 18-hole miniature golf course that’s sure to be fun for the entire family. The area where it is located is wonderfully landscaped and the views are as good as from anywhere else in the park. This is another Monday night deal, as well, at $2.00 per person per round. So c’mon out and try your hand at putting’ through the windmill…or test your skill against the whale…Ocean Beach’s stalwart mascot. The entire course is great!
For those who want to get in their daily workout, Renegade Health Clubs has a spectacular ocean view facility right on the boardwalk. Daily rates are available.
In addition to the spectacular ocean views of the boardwalk, we have a nature walk that overlooks the back side of the park, a beautiful estuary called Alewife Cove.
Did you forget something? Interested in a shirt or souvenir to remember your trip? We have a new Gift Shop that offers beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, lotions to protect your skin and many other beach items
SNACKS, MEALS, AND TREATS
We’ve got all the options covered for beach dining. Our Sandbar Café is located on the upper deck overlooking the beach and boardwalk and offers full service meals and adult beverages daily. For a quicker less formal approach, check out the Boardwalk Galley on the lower level, also overlooking the ocean with faster foods including our famous clam fritters, great burgers, salads, wraps, fried foods and more. Denny’s on the beach offers char broiled burgers and dogs, beverages and fried foods without ever leaving the sand! For an afternoon treat, don’t miss the Boardwalk Creamery. Many guests tell us its the best soft serve anywhere! We hope you will agree.
