Pike Park Grand OpeningRelease Date: 2020-02-10
The public is invited to attend a grand opening celebration for Pike Park (195 W. Seaside Way), at noon Thursday, Feb. 13.
The 8,000-square foot park can be accessed via Seaside Way, just west of Pine Avenue, or via the slide, which is adjacent to the pedestrian stairs just south of Ocean Boulevard. The park’s features include a dog park, fitness stations, the slide, landscaping, lighting, benches and bike racks. The park was built by a private developer as a requirement included in the approval of the adjacent residential project.
The park was named in memory of the Pike Amusement Area, founded in 1902, which once ran along the shoreline south of Ocean Boulevard and featured arcades, food stands, gift shops, a variety of rides and a bath house.
