King Tide Excursions with Newport Parks and Recreation

Newport Parks and Recreation has announced a new excursion coming up on January 11th and February 10th.

Two dates were chosen to coincide with the king tides in January and February.

Participants will meet at the Newport Recreation Center and ride in a van to Shore Acres State Park where they will have 2 hours to view waves and stroll through the gardens.

“We chose Shore Acres because it’s famous for those big wave splashes,” says Jenni Remillard, Recreation Program Specialist, “but it also has the gardens and some trails for us to explore in case the ocean isn’t cooperating to give us a big show.”

Remillard mentions that even though it will be a king tide, that’s not a guarantee of large waves-swell is also a factor.

Remillard continued, “Shore Acres has special underwater topography that can create huge waves if conditions are right so we are hopeful with it being winter and king tides, we’ll see some action.”

After taking in the sights at the park, the van will head to the food truck pod in Coos Bay for a late lunch before starting back to Newport. If there is time, there will also be a pit stop in Charleston at Chuck’s Seafood for a chance to purchase smoked fish and other

Remillard noted, “This trip has it all, beautiful ocean views and the chance to see big waves, lovely gardens, and delicious food, plus you don’t have to drive!

Remillard will be leading the trip and is well versed in sea life and the ocean so participants will have a chance to learn something new.
