WONDERLAND OCEAN PUB
5083 Santa Monica Ave. Suite 2C
San Diego, CA 92107
The San Diego area’s first amusement park opened in the small beach town of Ocean Beach on July 4, 1913. Wonderland Park was built in 1913 on a sandy beach south of Abbott Street, between Voltaire Street and the ocean, and covered an area of 9-1/2 acres.
More than a decade before Mission Beach’s Belmont Park opened, Wonderland represented the height of summertime entertainment in the up-and-coming city of San Diego. Water slide, roller skating rink, carnival games, bowling alley, a zoo with 350 monkeys and the West Coast’s biggest roller coaster — Wonderland had it all.
However, the fun times didn’t last for long. Wonderland would close by 1915, an apparent victim of the festivities across town at Balboa Park. Then, in a final ignominy, its seaside rides would be swamped by San Diego’s massive killer floods of January 1916.
Using the culture and history of Ocean Beach as a foundation, Wonderland Ocean Pub was created to exemplify all that is great about this laid back beachfront community. We strive to provide a neighborly atmosphere, where you’ll always be treated like part of our family. With a view unparalleled to any other, come experience our coastal inspired menu or grab a cold pint of local craft brew.
