This is a great place to end the day. The pier is a nice, safe place to walk, the sunsets are gorgeous, and you get a real taste of what local life here would be.

Clean and accessible facility. Shucxs is a busy venue, but worth the wait and the walk along the pier has great views. Worth a visit at sunset.

Friends introduced my wife and I to the breathtaking sunset over Mobile Bay from the bluff at the park overlooking the Municipal Pier. Relaxing, inspiring, humbling. God is good.

It is a great place to visit with the family and enjoy a sunset! Kids love to see the fisherman and feed the pelicans. If you come to town, visit it for sure!
