This post brings you another park write up in the Ventura area, Oxnard Beach Park! Our kids love this park and even the older kids will play a game of tag on the equipment. The park features bbq grills, tables, a big grassy field to play ball or fly a kite, paved areas to bike, ride a scooter or walk, restrooms (kinda funky) and the beach.
It has a pirate ship/sea theme playground
Ride a Seahorse or spin in a bucket seat
Climb over a tunnel or conquer the head of a Sea Monster
What are these things called? Mini Merry-Go-Rounds and a friendly sea creature
A small zipline thingy and a teeter totter (they were posing for the pic, OMG, NOT playing on it)
One downside of this park is that it’s very popular and therefore very busy. In our 2 1/2 years of visiting it, this day was wonderfully empty. Amazing. If you want a table and bbq grill come early in the day and if there is no more parking, swing around into a neighborhood to find a space. If you don’t wanna deal with crowds don’t bother coming on any holidays. It’s sure to be packed. Only other con is there is no beloved wall around the play area, oh well. Another good thing is the beach only has a sprinkling of people there. Great big stretch of beach, lotsa room to for kiddies to run without disturbing other beach goers. We have never gone swimming at this beach, as there is a very strong currant so states the warning signs. But its great to explore the sand dunes or simply play in the sand.
