Featured Neighborhood-Ocean Park

The Lesner Bridge reaches across the Lynnhaven Inlet into this bayfront residential community.  Currently enjoying acclaim for having some of Virginia Beaches widest beaches, this area also has a rich history.  For more about the history see this comprehensive website: Ocean Park History

The abundant recreation literally surrounding Ocean Park includes kayaking, SUP on calm bay waves, swimming, sand volleyball, sailing, jet skiing, fishing, nature hikes on Pleasure House Point, and a local favorite: crab races.  This friendly community organizes many social events with and through the Ocean Park Civic League. 

The school district consists of Thoroughgood Elementary, Great Neck Middle, and Frank W. Cox.

Ocean Park is the home to several popular restaurants, shopping, the interstate, and the bases.  The newest home for sale in Ocean Park can be viewed here. The location adjacent to Pleasure House Point will provide the next buyer with close proximity to the quiet neighborhood playground, the city marina, the oceanfront shuttle access, and the Brock Environmental Center.  The new Lesner Bridge is currently in construction and will provide bikers and pedestrians with 10' wide lighted pathways for safe crossing east and west over the Lynnhaven Inlet.
