Ocean Beach Park New London
Where are we going today?
Ocean Beach Park is the perfect place in Connecticut if you want that classic boardwalk experience for the kids!
The park features a host of fun attractions and activities for the whole family - and best enjoyed in the sun!
Ocean Beach Park is of course, right on the beach! Kids can play in one of the best beaches in the Northeast, with half a mile of pristine sand to play in. Opposite the beach you will find the boardwalk, and the rest of the activities that Ocean Beach Park has to offer!
You can get out and explore the area on the nature trails, or just eat, drop, or enjoy the rides! Parents can re-live childhood and kids can start making their own memories on the selection of amusement rides along the boardwalk. From the graceful carousel, to those classic rides, and of course the little train - to rides perfect for adults such as the Scrambler, The Octopus and The Bullet!
In between rides, kids can head into the arcade and try and win a selection of prizes through the many classic and modern games there!
If THAT wasn't enough, why not spend time at Ocean Beach Park playing 18 holes of mini golf? And to cool down from that fun, the park also features a 50m Olympic sized pool, with a fun waterslide and sprayground where you can cool off on those warmer months.

Liked-Very historical 20s age facility, beautiful buildings especially the bathhouses
Disliked-Horrible traffic leaving in the afternoon, lack of traffic directing from state police, parking lots are far from beach

Great value for 10 bucks per car. Drive to the right to get to the second beach. Its is the best one with plenty space and refreshing water

Beach is subpar though they try, the park Police surrounding the beach are the biggest A-holes imaginable, basically criminals with guns who treat American tax paying citizens and tourists alike like criminals-apparently they're bored and unhappy with their 55k annual salary and try to make up for it through gestapo like tactics and policing.I'll rather fly three hours down south to a real beach and spend my money there. -F
