This park has a great playground for kids; lots and lots of things to climb on and slide down. Locals like me go there all the time in good weather. It has a community pool (indoor) there that is open to the public. Public library is also there and they have programs happening often. It has great picnic areas and... More

We have visited Crescent City several times, latest being a splendid summer day over Labor Day Weekend 2014. The park is very pretty and is good for walks, tidal pools, kids play areas, picnics, n and also has a disc golf course.

We've stopped at this park while visiting Jeremiah Smith State Park this trip but have also stopped many times in the last 30 years. It is the best place to bring your family and pets. Nice children's playground, nice picnic spots, lighthouse. Just the perfect spot by a lagoon.

Excellent and very accessible tidepools. For the best experience, go at low tide. You can check the tide chart here to find out when that will be on the day or your visit: http://tides.mobilegeographics.com/locations/1419.html

This is a gated area designed for kids to have fun. Thanks to Crescent City's attention to detail and especially dozens of volunteers from the local LDS Church who conduct deep maintenance periodically, this place is a "must visit" for people who are traveling and need to give their children some wholesome exercise.

The park is so close to the beach, just a short stroll away. Take in the ocean view as your children play their hearts out. Besides a few bums hanging out on the beach (which they were very polite and nice) it is a perfect spot to hang out and enjoy each others company.

This was a terrific place to watch Pelicans dive-bomb for food. It was a lot of fun, just to kick back, and watch a "Discover Channel Moment" happen in front of us :)

This is always a great place for families to relax. The wooden playground area is especially nice for kids to unwind after a long road trip. Lots of green grass and space to run. But, as others have noted, beware the seagull poop. If you venture to the western part of the park there is a sea-animal rehab center/gift shop.... More
