about Ocean Park Playground:
The park is along one side of the bike path and mostly fenced in so kids enjoy the constant action whizzing by like bikes and roller bladers.
Smallish in size, Ocean Park Playground has three swings and two toddler play areas, with several slides and climbing equipment, a sandlot, and a ride-on space shuttle for two. The playground's best features, though, are the fresh ocean breezes, soaring seagulls, and the stunning view of the Pacific.
There is also plenty of open grass to play on, and a beach snack bar open most days until sunset.
Parking is easy, with two large park all day lots ($6-$9 depending on the season), as well as an hourly pay-and-display lot ($1/hour for up to two hours).
The playground is also called Dorothy Green Park.
