History of the Center

Ocean Air Community Park opened on January 20, 2010. It is an 18 acre park that includes a 16,500 square foot Recreation Center providing meeting rooms, a kitchen, offices, restrooms, and a multi-functional gymnasium.  The park includes two ball fields, an outdoor basketball court, walking paths, picnic structures, and a large grassy field surrounded by rolling mounds.  The park also provides a large playground with climbing rocks and boulders, a sand area, and various play structures for children ages 2 through 12.

Artistically, the park includes a long row of Liquidambar trees which when mature will shield park users from prevailing winds that sweep through the site. The site includes California native plants that line the pathways and bring the users up to a stainless steel deck that overlooks the open space preserve. The project was designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification for its environmentally sustainable design.
