Reid, a native of Georgetown who grew up in a family of modest means and who built an oceanside estate near the grounds of the present-day park.Activities and amenitiesOcean swimming is offered at Mile Beach and Half Mile Beach, while warmer waters are found at a tidal inlet, The Lagoon, where the quieter waters tend to be 10 to 15 degrees warmer. The park also has picnicking areas, fishing, and hiking trails. The beaches provide essential nesting areas for endangered least terns and piping plovers.
