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

The homes that surround the park are true eye candy. Nice to see so many people using it. Relaxing or flying a kite or throwing a ball around in the summer. Cross the street if you wanna get sandy and stare at a straight flat atlantic blue

You won't find a prettier view than Ocean Park. The Atlantic Ocean is your grand stand view with plenty of room for picnics or kite flying. In August the Oak Bluffs firework has its amazing display over the ocean. The park will packed that night but so worth the hassles of getting your spot.

We stop here each season , and what a treat ! While sitting on a park bench , you can scan the surf , horizon or just the clouds in the sky ! The open space and grass provide an open, airy feeling, and you feel permission to breathe deeply and smell the cool salt breeze!! Very relaxing . In... More
