Where the creek and ocean meet, you'll find a grassy day-use area and access to a cliff-rimmed beach. Discover this park's perfect wind-sheltered picnic areas. In case of rain, head for the covered picnic shelter. Walk the wooden footbridges arching through the Sitka spruce, western hemlock, shore pine and alder forest. At the beach, a lazy creek flows into the sea, cutting through an enchanting scenic ocean cove. This park has great birdwatching and tidepools to explore.
Acquired from various private owners by purchase and gift between 1954 and 1978. The park and stream are named for John Fogarty, a past judge of Lincoln County. A native of Ireland, John Fogarty came to Oregon about 1875 and settled in the Yaquina Bay area in 1884. He served as city councilman, county commissioner and judge.
