Founded in 1881, the unique seaside Chautauqua community of Ocean Park, Maine still flourishes as a summer assembly—in the Chautauqua tradition—with 136 years of history and heritage.

Each summer lectures, workshops, family programs, and opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal are offered in a non-denominational, interfaith setting.

Central to that tradition are the architecturally important Temple, the Temple Garden, and the Pergola—spaces for quiet reflection or meditation. At the end of your stay, you will go home feeling just a bit more content and looking forward to your next Ocean Park visit. Learn more about Ocean Park's history and all of the significant historic buildings. Read more > >

The importance of all the OPA properties is the wonderful activities that take place there. The program offerings are so diverse. Every day of the week there are activities suited to every interest and age. The highlight of the week is the ecumenical Sunday morning worship at the Temple featuring outstanding preachers and musical offerings.

The seven mile beach on Saco Bay and the surrounding marsh and forest land are national treasures. The historic buildings of Ocean Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and most listings of the nation's finest beaches include the stunning beach, where kids of all ages play, swim, surf, and build castles in the sand.
