Ogunquit's Public Parks

#1: Ogunquit Beach: Ogunquit Beach is the southern portion of a three-mile long stretch of white sand running all the way into the neighboring town of Wells. There are three major entrances onto the beach, and the sections of the beach immediately accessed by those entrances are known by three names: Main Beach, which is accessible at the end of Beach Street in the center of town, Footbridge Beach is which accessible by the next beach entrance at the far end of the beautiful footbridge at the terminus of Ocean Street, and North Beach, which is accessed from Ocean Avenue in Wells.

#2: Marginal Way: This one-mile breathtakingly beautiful paved path carries you from Perkins Cove, which is our southern-most village area, along the ocean to Ogunquit Village, which is the center of our town. During low tide, several small beaches can be accessed by stairwells from the walking path. (During high tide, the beaches disappear!) When you reach the end of the path, walk a short way up the sidewalks on Shore Road, turn down Wharf Lane, and then continue on another path which ends at Beach Street, just yards from the beach itself. Download and print this "Kids Guide to the Marginal Way" for fun children's activities related to our famous walkway.

#3: Dorothea Jacobs Grant Common: Adjacent to the museum is the perfect place for a picnic lunch – the Dorothea Jacobs Grant Common is a traditional park with grass, trees and park benches.

#4:  Littlefield Park: Bounded by Ledge Road and Park Lane in a residential neighborhood is Littlefield Park, another grassy knoll perfect for picnicking or letting the kids run around. While bicycle racks are available, parking is not.

#5: Josias River Park: Just off Main Street, on Bourne Lane is a small park with two benches looking over the Josias River. You will need to walk there or take the trolley (the trolley will drop you right there), as there is no parking.

#6: Ogunquit Dog Park: At the end of Spring Hill Lane off Berwick Road is a large fenced-in area for dogs to play. It is well-shaded, organically treated for pests, and includes chairs, benches and a picnic table for the humans, and playground equipment, balls, and a wading pool for the dogs. Running water is available seasonally.

#7: Payeur Preserve: Just to the right of the entrance to the Ogunquit Dog Park is the beginning of a mile-long dogs-welcome tranquil trail through the woods. It circles around, so you will end up where you started, but you’ll be relaxed and rejuvenated upon your return. *This park is owned by Great Works Regional Land Trust, not the Town of Ogunquit, but it is open and free to the public from dawn to dusk.

#8: Agamenticus Park:  If sports are your thing, check out the park on Agamenticus Road. You need to cross over into York to get there, but the park does belong to the town of Ogunquit. You’ll find tennis courts and a ball field. You can reserve a court by calling the Town Office at 207-646-5139.

#9: Ogunquit Village School Playground:  Next to our Town Hall and Police Station, on a lot between School and Cottage Streets, is  a fenced-in playground for the little ones. With swings, jungle gym, monkey bars and more, your little ones will stay entertained while you play a game of pick-up basketball with the teens in your group.

#10: Beach Plum Farm:  The headquarters for the Great Works Regional Land Trust, Beach Plum Farm is on Main Street, heading north from the center of town. It features a trail out to the marshes along the Ogunquit River, public gardens, and a museum of memorabilia from our forward-thinking forefathers who made sure that so much of Ogunquit’s land is available for public use. *This park is owned by Great Works Regional Land Trust, not the Town of Ogunquit, but it is open and free to the public from dawn to dusk.
