Many of our local activities are staged here. Concerts, food events, Harborfest. Something for everyone so check what is on deck if you are visiting the area.

Nice area, but busy. Parking is a hassle we ended up parking quite a way from the park. We were there for a festival and wow the security!!!!

This was a great park to picnic in in 1992. Great place to throw a frisbee. I have no idea about now, haven't gone lately :^)
