We have been to ocean beach park many times and we have never been disappointed. A lot for the kids to do and always clean. A must stop for families and couples alike.

Such a Gem in the off season. While we still havent visited in peak season we love it here. So much fun to fly a kite, take a walk, and enjoy the sand/water on a beautiful spring day. Worth the trip.
