#3 of 7 in Outdoors in Oxnard
Oxnard Beach Park is a public beach operated and maintained by the city of Oxnard, California at 1601 South Harbor Boulevard.DescriptionThe park is located along the California Coastal Trail and the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route. The park includes palm tree lined pathways and a bike/walking path connecting the communities of Oxnard Shores and Channel Islands Beach. There is also an easy bike/walking connection to Channel Islands Harbor. Oxnard Beach Park includes two spacious barbecue areas with a capacity of 200 occupants, each with a public sink, table, and a large grill. Activities include beachcombing, walking, and ocean swimming. The park was designed to protect the sand dunes between the beach and grass picnic area.HistoryJean Harris persuaded city of Oxnard leaders to adopt a grand vision in the creation of this park. The State of California initially purchased a 26-acre site for the park in 1979. The developer of an adjacent residential with a hotel site dedicated an additional 36 acres, giving the park its present size of 62 acres. With the adoption of an operating agreement between City and State in December 1983, plans were developed for this park that was initially called Oxnard State Beach. The park was transferred to City of Oxnard in 1998.Scenes from Oxnard Beach Park

    It's a great place to come and relax, or even come with your family and have a little gathering. I love that you can also throw a big birthday party as well! After the party you can just walk down the walk way and your at the beach.

    Great park for a picnic. Plenty of room and a good playground for the little ones. It's a pirates theme.

    Love this beach park. A large park to accommodate many events. A few steps away from walking to the beach too.

    Clean park. Easy beach access. Lots of parking. Inexpensive $5 dollar all day parking fee. Bathrooms could use more attention.

    This beach is so beautiful! We had no trouble finding parking. The beach and the park are all so well maintained. It looked beautiful! Loved the dunes and saw an amazing sunset!
