This was our special occasion playground while we lived in Corpus, but I never took my 2 kids there by myself. The playground isn't enclosed, so: A. Kids can wander to the water, B. Kids can wander toward the busy parking lot, or C. Anyone off the street can wander in. I follow my kids everywhere through the playground, and... More

Cole park is the kind of park that every city needs to look at and consider modeling in some way. A great playground. A beautiful view. A green space for families and friends to gather. A great place for activities.

This is one of our favorite places to go with our 2 year old grandson Sam. He loves to explore every inch of the park and all the great interactive slids, swings, etc. It overlooks the Bay and is usually pretty clean. Lots to do!! Covered picnic tables for resting or eating. Fun, fun, fun!!!

This is such a fun park for the kids! Swing sets and jungle gyms, picnic tables and BBQ's, there is even a roller boarding park there. There is a very nice concrete walkway around the Bay park. Of course, this is all better since you have beautiful view of Corpus Christi downtown area, and CC Bay as well. It is... More

I really enjoy going to Cole Park. They have a great kid's area and also a nice skate park. In the summer they have the Bay Jammin' Series on Friday nights and movie night on Thursday. We take a picnic, blanket and find a place on the berm to watch. Cole Park sits right on the bay and there is... More

This is a lovely park especially with family! In the summer time there are open air concerts and at Ester a sunrise service. Well worth the journey especially on the 4th of July! My husband proposed to me here in the moonlight over 30 years ago and I still loved it ( and him!) when we visited!
