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!

Lots of tables for parents or adults to sit and supervise. Good areas to read. Small vendors provide snacks if one did not bring some. Plenty of trash cans. Fairly good view of all parts of playground. But try to be where one can observe the back of play area as water is accessible if small children are not monitored.

At Cole Park there is a pier for fishing and also a Play Scape Park for children. Many families go to Cole Park to have a good time.

Just south of the amphitheater there is a lovely stretch of beach... Lots of places to take a leisurely stroll, roller skate, or sit on a park bench taking it all in. Jet skis, paddle boats and a variety of tours available for the adventurous... We opted for free spirit strolls and dips in the ocean. Locals and tourists alike... More

My husband and I recently took our 4 year old granddaughter on an outing to this park. We packed drinks, snacks and her scooter, and we were off. We started by parking above the playground area of the park across the street from the First Baptist Church on Ocean Drive. There is a very nice paved walkway that leads to... More
