It is a good walk and you will see people along the walkway. There are statues and monuments on the way to stop and see, which are really worth stopping for.

Just plain beautiful. My favorite park and beach. Always peaceful. Has several playgrounds, a splash pad, skate park, concession stand, bathhouse with toilets. Plenty of shade or sun. Built in grills so you can leave yours home if you choose.
