This little park on the point has a cafe for coffee, a burger/hot dog stand, bike rentals, a beach for swimming and wading plus free bathrooms! It is the perfect place to start, really any time of day, for an outdoor adventure along the peninsula....More

Such a beautiful place to take a walk or a drive. During May there are flowers everywhere. Parking can be a bit of challenge so have time in your schedule.

I do not believe the pool is heated. It is pretty new as they had a campaign to completely re-do it a few years ago. Now it is more of a smaller kids pool than a pool for adults. Has a ramp going down to enter the water.

First come basis as far as I could tell. Only a bike rental area nearby. No other concession area to sign up for them.
