History Of The Park

Ocean Beach was an amusement park in Rhyl, North Wales which operated from 1954 until September 2, 2007.

Rhyl began to take off as holiday resort following the opening of its train station in 1848 and the fairground at Marine Lake was seeing thousands of visitors annually.

It relocated in 1954 and was based at the West end of the promenade.

The town and the park declined in popularity since the 1960s and there had been very little investment in new rides or attractions in its final years.

It closed for the final time on 2 September 2007.

Plans to build a retail and leisure complex on the site of the old Ocean Beach site, known as Ocean Plaza due to commence building in May 2009 have been delayed.
