Oakland Beach Shore and Bank Protection Project

Oakland BeachOakland Beach, part of Oakland Beach State Park, is located in Warwick along the northern shore of Greenwich Bay. Bordered by Brush Neck Cove on the west and Warwick Cove on the east, Oakland Beach State Park offers the public a variety of recreational opportunities, such as swimming, boating, fishing, clamming, and sporting activities.

The project involved widening a total of 200 feet of beach along each side of the existing seawall by the direct placement of sand; constructing five stone groins; and constructing stone slope protection in front of the seawall.

The work at Oakland Beach cost $740,000 and was completed in 1981 under Section 103 of the Continuing Authorities Program.
