The seaside Chautauqua community of Ocean Park, ME has 134 years of history and heritage as a summer assembly in the Chautauqua tradition.

Founded in 1881, Ocean Park is a retreat to the quiet of the pines and the beach offering lectures, workshops, family programs, and opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal in a non-denominational, inter-faith setting. The Temple Garden and pergola can provide you with a time for quiet reflection or meditation and at the end of your stay, you will go home feeling just a bit more content and looking forward to your next Ocean Park encounter. Read more about Ocean Park's history and traditions.

The seven mile beach and the surrounding marsh and forest land are national treasures. The historic buildings of Ocean Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and most listings of the nation's finest beaches include the stunning seven mile beach, where kids of all ages play, swim, surf, and build castles in the sand. Isn't it time to visit?

Be sure to stop by or visit Ocean Park Realty on the web to secure your lodging accommodations for 2015. Jeff Chute, our Agency Realtor is ready to assist you.

Become a Part of a New Ocean Park Tradition

Since May, 2013 close to 300 families and individuals have contributed to the "Restore & Renew Our Village" Capital Campaign. Now, in addition to the generous pledges and one-time gifts that have been offered by members and friends of the Ocean Park Association, we are revealing a new way to celebrate the accomplishments and memories of our loved ones.

Image: Pavers Mock UpWe are pleased to announce the opportunity to become forever "etched" into the heart of the Ocean Park community by purchasing a personalized and commemorative granite paver to be installed in the walkway outside the Memorial Library in Demerritt Square. The engraved pavers in the walkway will be a permanent tribute to those individuals who share a love of Ocean Park.

The individually engraved pavers will form the path by which visitors will pass on their way into the newly renovated Library. By adding your name, or that of a loved one, to a brick, you will be joining countless other Ocean Park friends—to pave the foundation for a promising future for this place we love.

Make a first impression and be one of the first to set in stone your love for Ocean Park today and become a part of the history of Ocean Park.
