  • Great park if you like rules and regulations. You can walk the beach, but you can't swim unless...you can bring your dog, but he/she can't take in the lawn or beach. I think you can both swim in the pond, but I may have missed that sign. Take the first hard right turn for the best high altitude view [at least in winter]. Plenty of parking in the off season. Outstanding ferns and rock formations. Don't miss the Michael Graves architectural homage to excess and contextuality above the beach.
  • Tiny parking lot but incredible hidden gem. LOVE THIS PLACE.
  • Stunning trails for gentle hiking and amazing views!
  • One of the North Shore's best ocean/lawn combos!
  • Beautiful view
