We to stop in for 2-3 hour visits. Great for kids to get to swim. Large swim area and beach. Water quality goes up and down depending on weather. Great carousel. Park is 7.5/10 for clean. Good food around the area.

Have loved Ontario Beach Park since I was a child and wanted to show my adult children how great it was. The beach is beautiful and clean, the pier is long and inviting and also handicapped accessible and Abbott's is nearby!
