  • This park has a nice stretch of water where people can enjoy a quiet time. Others can walk with their dogs, others just sit back and relax on the benches. Will keep coming back here when in the area.  more »

  • First time to beach this year. Wasn't impressed whatsoever. Taking all the beach away for a walkway makes it jammed way to much. The new playground with mulch chips forcing shoes on kids. Its a beach!!!!! shoes are off when you get there until you go home. Whoever was designer of new water front should be fired. Wasting peoples tax money to the fullest. Very bad time left pretty quick
  • A beautiful place to go for a bike ride. Nice park for my little guy. Can't wait until they are finished the construction.
  • Freshly upgraded park for the the little ones. The beach is great. There are loads of restaurants near but by, with a few even on the beach. A great place to unwind.
  • Nice area to go swimming and in general have a picnic. The facility overall is clean, the water apart from having some litter is pretty clean and they are renovating the park so new and updated stuff is coming in
  • Beautiful area. They're always improving it. Great place to walk around.
