  • Such a wonderful place to spend a day. Great fishing,hiking or just relaxing. Nature center is really cute for the kids.
  • Very cute children's discovery center, lots of trails, historical sites, and a long rocky shore perfect for tide pooling at low tide.
  • Beautiful park on the rocky shore. Great for school field trips, families with kids to explore tidal pools and the nature center with lots of educational and hands-on exhibits. Great views, gift shop and playground. Great place to bring a picnic.
