About Overlook Beach Park
The 3-acre Overlook Beach Park is located at the end of Reynolds Road at Thunderbird Drive and Salida Road in Mentor-on-the-Lake. The park features a three-tiered wooden observation platform at the bluff.
A series of staircases connect the platform levels and lead to a 370-foot long swimming beach. The beach is also accessible via a dirt walking path located in the eastern part of the park.
Additional amenities at Overlook Beach Park include a gazebo, playground equipment, picnic tables, grills, basketball court and benches overlooking Lake Erie. Fishing is permitted.
From Lake Erie Public Access Guide
The parking lot is accessed off Thunderbird Drive, just west of the Reynolds Road intersection. Reynolds Road becomes Salida Road near the park’s eastern boundary.
The park’s beach consists of foot-friendly sand that is mixed with small stones and shell fragments closer to the water’s edge. A stormwater outfall crosses the beach at the western end. The east end of the beach is marked with a stone revetment.
The western two-thirds of the park is mostly unshaded, mowed-grass, open space; the eastern portion has a thick deciduous tree canopy.
