Social Ocean at World War II Park

Take a Swim in the Social Ocean

Ok, its not the real ocean, but a swim at World War II Veterans Memorial Park is a great way to spend a summer afternoon.

World War II Park Grounds Surrounded by brick mills, high rise apartments and triple deckers, World War II Veterans Memorial Park is a creatively designed outdoor recreation area. Water from a reflecting pool on the Social Street side of the park cascades down a manmade stream into a large pond and swimming area, affectionately referred to as the "Social Ocean". Also included are footpaths, playground equipment, tennis and volleyball courts and a bandstand for outdoor concerts.

World War II Veterans Memorial Park is located on Social Street and is open year round from sunrise to sunset. Swimming is allowed from July 1st through Labor Day.
