"Great Beach Neighborhood"

Oakwood Beach is located in east central Staten Island and lies along the southern shore bordered by the Atlantic Ocean.

Points of interest in the area include the string of cemeteries on the southwest side, Frederick Douglass Memorial Park, and African-American burial ground. The historic Richmond Town lies to the immediate west. Oakwood Beach is the site of a sewage treatment facility. To the south of the facility lies the Gateway National Recreation Area, also known as Great Kills Park.

The actual beach is a great place to go. Oakwaood Beach offers a nice slice of coastline. There’s boating, swimming, fishing, whitewater paddling, and golf nearby at Silver Lake Golf Course. The area gets a lot of rain, so dress accordingly.
