This place is open in the summer and most of it closes in the fall. There are some of the restaurants open in the fall and it is a great place to take the kids on a nicer day. It's also a great spot for fishing!

Still well cared for park and great for walks, making you feel like a local. However, there was little information to say That the Food area's are closed during off season, and a little disappointing as we walked from the town centre.

Would like to come back on a day that's not so crowded with fishermen. Great views. People with claustrophobia or crying children need not attend

Love this little park. The kids like the games and rides and we love to walk the paths they have there and walk on the beach. It is a great place for a family picnic.

We visited on a weekday after Labor Day and just about everything was closed down as of 3:30 p.m. Of course the water views and activities are there but the amusement park was just about non-existent. It is very small too which surprised us. We were told that this is a 'must see' and perhaps it is during the summer... More

Definitely a must if you have children between 3 and 8. Vintage merry go rounds and early rides (most probably took pennies or nickels per ride back in the day) were a real hit.

Food, arcades, and more food.We found the area a bit dirty and rundown. Probably wouldn't go back but if you are looking for something to do with kids this could be for you.

When you go to this park you will feel like you have stepped back in time. I use to bring my son here when he was little (and he's 27 now) and NOTHING has changed. In fact my husband use to go with his parents when he was little. The popcorn is wonderful at Hobbs but the Salt Water Taffy... More
