Featured Neighborhood-Ocean Park

The Lesner Bridge reaches across the Lynnhaven Inlet into this bayfront residential community.  This area has a rich history dating back to the original settlement of the New World.  For more about the history see this comprehensive website: Ocean Park History

The abundant recreation literally surrounding Ocean Park includes kayaking, SUP on calm bay waves, swimming, sand volleyball, sailing, jet skiing, fishing, nature hikes on Pleasure House Point, and a local favorite: crab races.  This friendly community organizes many social events with and through the Ocean Park Civic League. 

The school district consists of Thoroughgood Elementary, Great Neck Middle, and Frank W. Cox.

Ocean Park is the home to several popular restaurants, shopping, the interstate, and the bases.  But the shining jewel in the crown is that it is surrounded with natural beauty.  With the Chesapeake Bay to the north and Pleasure House Point cupping the boundary on the Lynnhaven River, recreation surrounds this community.  The beach, city marina, oceanfront shuttle, a quiet neighborhood playground, and nature trails running to the Brock Environmental Center, there is an endless supply of leisure activities.  The new Lesner Bridge provides bikers and pedestrians with 10' wide lighted pathways for safe crossing east and west over the Lynnhaven Inlet.

Ocean Park's Newest Listing is within the serene neighborhood of Water Oaks. Under a canopy of live oak trees, the nearly 400 feet of driveway to this gated community detaches one from the hustle and bustle of the daily activities and welcomes to a unique 6 acre beachfront neighborhood.  Unlike any other condo in Virginia Beach, this one offers ample parking for you and your guests, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, wading pool, clubhouse, bike storage, lighted paths, lush landscaping, and a private beach access to nearly 1500 feet of direct beachfront. Schedule your viewing of this truly exceptional property by contacting Windy Crutchfield (757) 646-8056.
