What to do...


Ocean Beach Park New London, CTFirst and foremost of our attractions is one of the most lovely beaches in the Northeast! A half a mile of pristine “sugar-sand” beach gives you and the family plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your day in the sun. C’mon in... the water’s fine... and so is that sand. Build a castle... sculpt to your heart’s content... OR... just lay your towel out and bask on its meticulously-groomed comfort!

Along the side of the boardwalk opposite the beach, you’ll find all the rest Ocean Beach Park has to offer. A nature trail, a picnic area, playground, brand new free sprayground, our pool, a gift shop, food and drink galore (with a sidewalk cafe kinda feel) and so much more...read further for more information on some of our highlighted offerings.


Relive your own childhood as you watch your kids enjoy all the lovingly restored, old-time, kiddy rides. From the classic and graceful carousel, a little train ride, to the rest of the rides, which consist of all those you most fondly remember...the little bumble-bee-painted flyers...the kid-sized spinners...the tiny cars for their first “driving experience”. We’ve expanded to include some grown- up rides as well, including those old favorites, The Scrambler, The Octopus, and The Bullet! AND...on Monday nights, there is still a special price for kiddy rides.


For the kids of all ages, Ocean Beach boasts a wonderful arcade, where, again, you can relive a little nostalgia, with Skee-Ball...winning tickets you collect against a wide variety of prizes for which they can be redeemed.


We have a fine 18-hole miniature golf course that’s sure to be fun for the entire family. The area where it is located is wonderfully landscaped and the views are as good as from anywhere else in the park. This is another Monday night deal, as well, at $2.00 per person per round. So c’mon out and try your hand at putting’ through the windmill...or test your skill against the whale...Ocean Beach’s stalwart mascot. The entire course is great!


Ocean Beach Park also boasts a 50-meter, Olympic-sized pool. We have changing rooms and token-operated lockers for your convenience In addition, there is a great waterslide for when simple “laps” just won’t do! And a spray park for our younger visitors.
