The park is located along the California Coastal Trail and the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route. The park includes palm tree lined pathways and a bike/walking path connecting the communities of Oxnard Shores and Channel Islands Beach. There is also an easy bike/walking connection to Channel Islands Harbor. Oxnard Beach Park includes two spacious barbecue areas with a capacity of 200 occupants, each with a public sink, table, and a large grill. Activities include beachcombing, walking, and ocean swimming. The park was designed to protect the sand dunes between the beach and grass picnic area.
Jean Harris persuaded city of Oxnard leaders to adopt a grand vision in the creation of this park. The State of California initially purchased a 26-acre site for the park in 1979. The developer of an adjacent residential with a hotel site dedicated an additional 36 acres, giving the park its present size of 62 acres. With the adoption of an operating agreement between City and State in December 1983, plans were developed for this park that was initially called Oxnard State Beach. The park was transferred to City of Oxnard in 1998.

Oxnard Beach Park reviews
Good beach to hang-out and get a tan. Not certain of the water is always safe to enter, as there is a waste water treatment facility and small power production plant nearby. more »
This State Beach Park was great, not that many people coz of Covid probably, but it was good, it had a bike lane, and lots of picnic tables, nice place to relax... more »
It was a great weekend and a great barbecue. next to the beach with the family. all very well and a lot of space to run and the children end up exhausted. of so much to play.
We walked the beach and enjoyed the view, but didn't know that oil seeps up from the ocean floor and washes up onto the beach. The bottom of my shoes and feet had glops of black, sticky goo on them. My shoes were ruined. This is not a place I will go back to.
