Admire the wide array of gardens and flora on the grounds of a former pioneer estate at Shore Acres State Park, nestled along the forested edge of the Pacific Ocean. Visit the park and wander its 2 hectares (5 acres) of landscaped gardens, replete with both local and exotic plants and crisscrossed by numerous footpaths. Make your way to the Japanese-inspired lily pond area and pause for a peaceful moment of reflection. Head for the nearby sandstone cliffs to take in a sweeping view over the sea, complete with waves crashing powerfully against the rock below. Keep your eyes open and you may even spot the spout of a migratory gray whale. Arrange to visit Shore Acres State Park and other attractions in Coos Bay using our Coos Bay online travel planner.
Shore Acres State Park reviews
We drove from Bandon to visit Shore Acres State Park. Came around 12:30 on Sunday, 7/25 and the weather was a little foggy and gloomy. You will need to pay $5 for Day Use for the Shore Acres State..... more »
A wonderful experience. Gardens are lovely and the setting is beautiful. Has a nice gift shop also. Easy drive from Coos Bay more »
Fantastic place relaxing while taking in some beautiful sights. The botanical gardens are well maintained with a wide variety of flowers (especially roses). There is also a seaside cliff that has a great view of the ocean, and there is a secluded cove that is well worth the short hike.
Best for senior citizens not looking for adventure. $5 entrance fee gets you easy access to look at rocks and ocean, a tiny botanical garden, a gift shop, and a bathroom. Up the road, the ocean is free and there are sea lions and seals. I was told this place is stunning when large waves hit the massive rocks, but we didn't have waves on our trip.
