To avoid the normal weekend crowds (I avoid overcrowded places as much as possible), so we took the kids there to play on the beach and walk out into the tidal flats during low tide on a weekday afternoon instead. Lots of parking and had much of the beach almost to ourselves. Only a handful of other cars in the parking lot, unlike on weekends when they are full to overflowing. Nice place to go for a walk on the beach without leaving the city. The kids loved walking way out and looking for little crabs, baby flounders and other tiny fish. Fun day overall.
