Quite a distance from beach water to parking but they have clean bathrooms and sidewalks. It was so nice, tons of room. Where I was, there were no life guards.

Great to go for a beach walk. Very close to downtown Oxnard. Pay for parking, but rate was cheap when I was there on a weekday.

Just to walk around, play with your kids, have your yoga or just be. Here is very peaceful on working days and more lively on weekends.

The park is well kept with walking paths and lots or grassy places for kids to play and adults to practice Yoga. You have a park connected to the beach. The best of both worlds.

I found a pretty quiet and secluded beach. hardly anyone at this beach and made it perfect for meditation and watching the sunset.
