Beach Office patio nears completion!
As mentioned below, The Ocean Grove Beach Foundation has worked with OGCMA to create a new paved patio adjacent to the beach office. It will provide a place for people to sit and enjoy the boardwalk, talk, as well as eat lunch, or stop and enjoy a snack at picnic tables.
Looks great already! Another way the OGBF helps to support the Ocean Grove beachfront and its operations.
Coming soon to a beach near you!
The Ocean Grove Beach Foundation has worked with OGCMA to create a new paved patio adjacent to the beach office. The patio will take the place of the area in the photo to the right. It will provide a place for people to sit and enjoy the boardwalk, as well as eat lunch, or stop and enjoy a snack. There will also be picnic tables. It should be a big improvement to this space. Hoping for an early Spring start.
Think Summer everyone!
OGBF completes planting around Beach Office
As we have in the past, the Ocean Grove Beach Foundation has completed its annual planting and beautification around and behind the Beach Office. Just one more way in which the OGBF makes the beach experience more enjoyable for everyone!
OGBF using a little elbow grease on the Beach Pavilion
In October 2020, the Ocean Grove Beach Foundation scraped, patched, and painted the Ocean Grove beach Pavilion, giving it some needed TLC. This is just one of the many ways the Foundation has dedicated its time and resources to support Ocean Grove.

In order to help Ocean Grove get ready for a Summer like no other, the Ocean Grove Beach Foundation has teamed with the OGCMA to build one-man Lifeguard stands to adhere to social-distancing regulations on the beach.
Thanks to all involved - Kirk Cramer (Designer and prototype builder), Dave Jenkins Sr., Ed Henry, Carl Minnis, Jeff Downing, Bob Borders, Doug Arpert, and Al Komjathy!
Great job, guys! Thanks for your efforts to support Ocean Grove Beach operations and keeping us safe!

Landscaping the Beach Office
The Ocean Grove Beach Foundation gave the area behind the Beach Office a well-needed landscaping.
Although it may look like just dirt now, beautiful plants and flowers are coming soon!
Special thanks to the Lifeguards on duty for the heavy lifting!
New Boat Trailer

New Competition Paddleboard
In yet another way we are helping the Ocean Grove Lifeguards, this new competition paddleboard arrived today. Pictured with the new equipment are John Glenn (left) and head of the Ocean Grove Lifeguards Jamie Doyle. Let's Go OG!!!
The OGBF has partnered with the OGCMA to install a boardwalk fountain by the Lifeguard shed. The fountain provides water that is filtered and refrigerated. For convenience, the fountain also has a bottle-filling station. Now all can enjoy a cool, refreshing drink while running, biking, or just taking a leisurely stroll on the boards!
