Boardwalk

From the aftermath of the 1938 Hurricane came the new Ocean Beach Park Boardwalk. The Boardwalk was modeled after Jones Beach Boardwalk in New York.  The Boardwalk hosts a center Portico and two round Porticos at each end to provide a shady refuse to the Public who visit the Park.  The Ocean Beach Boardwalk stretches across the Sugar Sand Beachfront to a total length of 1/3 of a mile.

In 1978, the Ocean Beach Boardwalk walking surface was refitted with new lumber by Carlin Construction. The existing timber supports were flipped over to provide fresh nailing for the new boardwalk surface to its stringer supports.

In the early 1990’s, the Boardwalk’s walking surface was again refitted with IPE, a South American hardwood. Each board had to be drilled and screwed to the existing stringer supports. The work was performed by Park Staff, Volunteers from NLPD, NLFD and Save Ocean Beach.  Monies were raised to start the center section of the Boardwalk by Boston Concessions. Additional

monies to complete the Boardwalk resurfacing was provided by the Save Ocean Beach Group with the sales of engraved boards in the Boardwalk.

The Boardwalk provides outstanding views of the beach and coastline, a place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Ocean Beach Park.
