Great day time beach with shelter houses, bath house, fishing area, dog beach and more. The beach is very clean and well maintained. It wasn't very busy when we went so it was very quiet. Not the best beach for swimming since there is a...More

We sat here and wat had a storm come in and pelicans dive for fish. There are areas to fish and other areas to access the beach. The one area we stopped at did have an awful fishy smell.

It's a nice city park, and it's clean and tidy. The boat ramp doesn't get much use on weekdays. In fact, the whole park is quiet on weekdays. There's picnic shelters, a playground, boat ramp, beach, and plenty of parking. It's a good stop on...More
