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.
The first tract for this wayside was a 1968 small gift from Orin and Lorraine Rosenburg, which included Maxwell Point with a tunnel for beach access. Tillamook County gave an acre of land in 1970, and Remy and Barbara Flusher gave a small parcel in 1980. Other tracts were purchased in 1970 and 1971.
