How it All Began……
Nestled in Worcester County Maryland on 3,500 acres of what once was farm land is now a Premier Community that includes nine miles of waterfront property.
In July of 1968 Ocean Pines first opened for business and road construction started quickly there after. The first day of sales was July 12, with the first year round residents not occupying Ocean Pines until 1970.
Ocean Pines quickly became a booming community, in 1971 they opened the Beach Club, Swim and Raquet Club & and an Equestrian Center, which is no longer available. The years after, they opened an 18 – hole golf course, The Ocean Pines Association formed, Community Hall was built, The Yacht Club and Marina were added and The Sports Core Pool graced the community.
It seemed that every year Ocean Pines continued to add more and more for there residents to enjoy, and here nearly 50 years later they still haven’t come to a halt.
Ocean Pines now has 12,000 full time residents and 8,000 part time residents, with there list of amenities growing with numbers!
Today Ocean Pines has four pool, one of which is indoor and open all year. The 18-hole golf course is still a part of Ocean Pines as well as a year round Golf Club, Ocean Pines Community Center in White Horse Park houses the Recreation and Parks division as well as the skate park and play ground. This is the same place where the Ocean Pines Farmers Market is held every Saturday.
Ocean Pines has their own Police Department to offer their residents proper security and piece mind, I mean Ocean Pines is basically its own city right? Threr is No need to travel far, near by you will find everything you need, a food lion, a selection of pharmacies and tons of dining options.
