WA Peninsula map Ocean ParkIf Long Beach represents the noise and color of a tourist town, Ocean Park is the quiet sibling. Originally the site of a religious retreat, the Ocean Park area became an easier to reach destination with the closing of the railroad (which ran along today’s Ocean Park’s Ridge Ave.) and the opening of road access along the peninsula. Clamming has become a major driver of the local economy and many seniors have made Ocean Park (and neighboring Surfside Estates) their retirement spot.
