Phipps Ocean Park

Phipps Ocean Park Review

About 2 miles south of "Billionaire's Row" on Ocean Boulevard sits this public oceanside park, with two metered parking lots separated by a fire station. The north side is better for beachgoers and currently houses the sole entry point to the beach itself (the other three entry points are closed for repairs). At the southern entrance, there is a six-court tennis facility. The beach is narrow and has natural rock formations dotting the shoreline. There are picnic tables and grills on-site, as well as the Little Red Schoolhouse, an 1886 landmark that hosts educational workshops for local kids. If a long walk floats your boat, venture north to see the mega-mansions, but don't go too far inland, because private property starts just a few feet from the surf. There's a 2-hour time limit for free parking. Amenities: parking (no fee); toilets; showers; lifeguards. Best for: walking; solitude.
