Beach and Pool

We had a good time at both the beach and pool. Kids loved the high and low diving boards. Great place to relax.

The park is pretty and well maintained. It has a nice marina, and the swimming pool is terrific for getting a good workout. When we stayed Islamorada a couple of years ago, we use it a lot.

Go ahead and look for another boat ramp, you won't find a better one. Great people to deal with a excellent clean dockage. BBQ's at slips and a great pool as well.

We love our community park. It is also the only doggie park! It is very well maintained, always clean. The pool does have a fee, but it is huge and the kids love the diving boards and splash pad. They also offer swim lessons, ask for Mrs Colleen! We love the small town feel to it!

Frankly i t doesn't worth it at all if you are looking for a nice floridian beach so don t go. First u have to pay 8$ weekdays and 15$ weekend and holidays per personn. You cannot swim it.s a tiny "pond" no deep water 3 feet deep so good for the kids

Huge pool. Pristine facilities. Grass like out of the Truman Show (how do they do it?), impressive thunderstorm warning system, rarely busy on the three occasions we have visited, kids love the diving boards and slam-dunk hoops, friendly lifeguards, Just love it here!

This park has something for everyone. Ample parking, beach access, large pool, all fields, playground, bathrooms. We visited for the Easter Egg Hunt, so did not pay to use the other facilities.

A very nice public park with a shaded beach area. Great spot for snorkeling. Admission fee was a little high, but our motel gave us a free pass.
