This park comes with amusements for visitors of all ages
People laughing on a busy boardwalk, children shouting as they run in and out of a sprayground, the sizzle of clam fritters cooking in a galley: That’s the musical backdrop to the old-fashioned amusement park at Ocean Beach Park. Kiddie rides range from lovingly restored carousels to tiny trains and cars; for grown-ups, there’s the Scrambler and the Octopus. But you can also play Skee-Ball in the arcade (cashing those tickets in for prizes) or 18 holes of mini-golf, get a soft-serve cone at the creamery or conquer the triple waterslide. Check out special deals on kiddie rides and mini golf on Mondays and entertainment offerings, including movies, bands and fireworks, throughout the week.
Parking fees (includes park admission for everyone in the car): Weekends $23, Weekdays $17, Weeknights after 6pm $8, Monday cruise nights are FREE after 5pm; Fireworks Evenings $10. Seasonal parking passes available. Walk-in Admission $6. See our website for additional information & fees for rides/attractions.
