Park Rules and Safety

Welcome to Ocean Beach Park

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.  We anticipate that we will often close our gates to cars and walk in patrons when we reach our new lowered capacity so don’t recommend that you come here from far.  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

A day at the beach including  swimming can be the greatest fun for all ages but can also turn into the biggest disaster if it’s not done responsibly. Here are a few thoughts: Make sure your children take swimming lessons. Swim only in designated areas where there are lifeguards present. Never swim alone. If you are the parent or guardian, the child’s safety is YOUR responsibility. Never trust a child, lifeguard, or any other individual to take it on for you. It’s yours. Leave your phone in your bag. Establish rules and boundaries for the kids so you can watch them easier. Young children or inexperienced swimmers should wear coast guard approved life jackets…but don’t rely on them. Don’t let the kids play any unsafe games in or near the water, including diving, jumping into the water, holding breath games, etc. Inflatables and other water toys are not life saving devices. Parents and kids digging holes in the sand and building sand castles, never allow them to dig deep holes or tunnels, especially near water lines (area where waves come in) and fill in holes when you are done. Let’s all please have a safe and enjoyable summer. We are proud of our lifeguard staff and safety programs and are here to help, but it starts with you. Please watch your kids!
