New Waterfront Park & Marina
The city of Ocean City, NJ recently acquired waterfront property on the bay side of the island and promptly transformed an empty, weed-choked lot into the O.C. Waterfront Park and Marina at 200 Bay Avenue.
Partly funded by the New Jersey Environmental Protection Green Acres Program, the new facility features 49 boat slips, 36 parking spaces (with an eco-friendly crushed shell surface), and a grassy passive recreational area. The Marina is open from April 15 until November 30 for seasonal or transient (7 days or less) dockage. The area may also be used for fishing or waterfront picnicking and includes a bike rack and seasonal office with restroom.
Scarborough Inn guests might enjoy this area as a waterside location for a picnic or for a spectacular view of the sunset over the bay. Don't forget your camera!
The Waterfront Park and Marina is an easy walk or bike ride from the inn; we'll be happy to give you directions.
