Ocean Park is obviously set along the ocean in Oak Bluffs, overlooking the ferry docks on one side and historic Victorian homes on the other. It's a wonderful park where people fly kites and dogs run around chasing balls. Idyllic setting with a small gazebo. Martha's Vineyard Transit buses pick up and drop off at the base of the hill,...

Ocean park is full of pic nics, kites, and lined with beautiful homes. Of course the water view and breeze are spectacular!

Our day trip to Martha's Vineyard included a bus ride to Oak Bluffs from Vineyard Haven where the ferry docked. This park is an attractive open space with a gazebo in the middle. Of more interest are the attractive cottages that surround the park on three sides. Sit a while and enjoy the ocean breezes (at least in the summer).

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
