Neighborhoods Ocean Park
Declare Your Independence
On Kiawah’s rugged eastern tip, as far from the mainland as it’s possible to run, bike, or drive, Ocean Park rewards its residents with large homesites, spectacular native vegetation and grand trees, a mile-long interior ribbon park, and incredible layered views of the marsh, river, ocean, and world-acclaimed Ocean Course.
Golfers who have braved the challenge of Pete Dye’s Ocean Course, site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships, have experienced Ocean Park: the breezes and gusts off the Atlantic Ocean, the savanna of marshland like something out of Africa, and in the distance, the 250-acre Little Bear Island preservation area—one of the largest barrier island conservation areas in the Southeast.
Explore the Neighborhood
Wake up to the sound of rustling leaves while sipping coffee on your back porch. Pack a picnic lunch and explore winding trails, pathways, and ponds as southwesterly trade winds keep you cool. Finish up by taking an evening stroll along the marsh with your dog as the sun sets gently over ancient oak trees.
The parklands are an integral piece of life in Ocean Park. In fact, the community was designed around them! Watch a behind-the-scenes video of one of Ocean Park’s designers explaining how and why.
Enjoy privileged access to Marsh House
Introducing Marsh House, a private community gathering spot spectacularly situated on Ocean Park’s wide southern marsh.
Strikingly designed in harmony with nature, Marsh House offers a wealth of covered and outdoor spots for eating, drinking, and relaxing: beside a fireplace, atop a raised deck, by a bar overlooking the wide marsh and famed Ocean Course tree line. The gathering place, which features an infinity pool, cocktail bar, and grill, will serve both Kiawah Island Club Members and Ocean Park property owners –with homeowners in Marsh Walk, a collection of new built-for-you residences adjacent to Marsh House, having the most convenient access.
A part of golf history
The Ocean Course is more than simply a seaside golf course, though Pete Dye’s design and its status as one of the world’s most challenging courses are certainly impressive. Even more striking: golf history was made here when The Ocean Course became the setting for the famous War by the Shore.
Often described as the Pebble Beach of the South because of its unobstructed panoramic views of the Atlantic coastline, The Ocean Course is located just south of Ocean Park, offering residents easy access to one of the most spectacular courses in the world.
