This is just a park. No reason to travel to oak bluffs to see this park, however if,you are in town to see cottages you.might want to check it out. Benches are comfy and have nice views of the ocean and there is a lot of activity to observe.

This is a lovely park to relax with a good book. As expected, during the annual summer fireworks, this park is crowed with family setting up as early as noon for the evening firework show. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful park to meditate or relax this is a wonderful spot anytime except during the fireworks.

Beautiful park, especially on fireworks night with the thousands of people enjoying great fireworks. First a band concert, then the fireworks.

This is a beautiful park. It's a great place to come with kids to fly kites or have a picnic. It has a nice view of the ocean.

I'm puzzled at all the rave reviews of the park. There's grass, a few small fountains, a gazebo and some interesting architecture around it, but don't waste your time!

Yes, this is "just a park". And yes, it is like a lot of other parks - big grassy areas, flowers, and a lovely gazebo in the center. And this one also has a great view of the ocean. But more than photos are able to capture is the ambiance. There is lots of activity surrounding the park, as it... More

Like the title of my review says, it's JUST a park. A large grassy field with a gazebo on it. Whoop-de-do. Why the raving reviews? Nearly every town in America has a park like this. I suppose it's a nice place for a picnic, near the gingerbread houses, but don't go out of your way to see it. There's nothing... More

Beautiful park, lots of manicured flower patches. Great views. Bring a picnic, a kite, or a greasy apple fritter from Back Door Donuts.

Ocean Park is adorable! It's huge so there's a lot of room to spread out, play, read a book, sunbathe, walk...you name it. It's literally RIGHT on the water. There's almost always an ocean breeze so it's a great place to fly a kite or cool off! The buses taking people around the island also pickup and drop off here,... More
