Lots of open space. Lots better after they did some remodeling so as far as I know, the rats haven't come back. I wish there were security walking around because there are people that drink while at the skate park or playground. Once in awhile there is loud music that doesn't make a person with children feel comfortable.

Cole Park have a beautiful view of the water and is close to downtown Corpus Christi. After parking at Cole Park there is a side walk you can continue along the path and enjoy a full view of the water. It's clean and well maintained.

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 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

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
