- Located in the center of the community of Oceanside, this park offers some of the best agate hunting during the winter season when the sand is stripped away by ocean currents. During the summer season, the park is a popular place to beachcomb, explore tidepools and surf. The sky above the park is occasionally filled with colorful hang gliders, paragliders and kites.
