This riverfront park provides access to the Siuslaw River near Historic Old Town Florence. Named by residents to memorialize the notorious exploding whale incident that took place on the Oregon Coast in the 70s, this beautiful wayside park offers a sandy beach and views of the Siuslaw River Bridge. Exploding Whale Park is not the original location of the blast, but a tribute to event.
