“It's just a park. What's the big deal?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

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 WRONG with this place; it's just a run-of-the-mill park.

“Beautiful park, lots of manicured flower patches. Great views.”

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

“Pretty Park & Bonus - on the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

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, so that's a plus. Must see!

“A town built around a park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

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

“A park like no other”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

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.
