my 2 year old had a blast at this park...the only problem with it was the temperature of the slides, because there isn't any shade

We always stop by while we are in Corpus. Our daughter really likes the playground and it's great to be looking off across the bay while she plays.

My daughter loved the playground. There is also a skate park there. There are bathrooms and a pier to walk on. Location is at the seawall.

I always enjoy Cole Park and it has fun events on Thursday and Fridays such as concerts. It is a great place for the whole family to just meet and enjoy the water and the best that CC has to offer -- a great view and enjoyment of our beaches.

I've visited this place too many times since I've lived in Corpus Christi. It used to be an amazing place but ever since the new park was put in with plastic everything it seems pretty dumb. Black plastic ground gets pretty hot and heat usually makes people irritable, I'd say that was the excuse but usually people are just really... More

The park extends in large to small segments along miles of Ocean Drive. Sunset and sunrise are gorgeous most days as you see displays of color in the sky reflected in the water. You can access the beach from most of these parks, walk your dog, visit with locals & tourists, cool off in a bay breeze, that is, enjoy... More

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!!!
