Spent several mornings there walking with my daughter and her dog. Lots of other pets there and a good mix of people around and all very friendly. A great place for parking and to start a walk along the shore line.

The Quintessential walk along Richardson Bay is the best in the Bay. A must see. The former railroad right of way is a delight to see with the Pacific flyway all along the path.
