We spent an afternoon on the beach in downtown Picton. The park is well used by locals and tourists. The sand is nice and the park has lots of kid toys and even a mini-golf.

Picton is a lovely town with a number of different shops and eateries. Easy to walk to the beach with a park and water park to help cool off in the warm weather! Great ice cream shop (pink and green store front)
