The sunsets over Lake Ontario are gorgeous and this is one of the best parks to see that sunset! Beautiful venue for taking pictures overlooking the harbor and the lighthouse. Nice walking paths with a great playground for the littles to play.

This park is great for taking walks (with or without pets) with a great view! Lots of room for picnics and playing in the grass. Paved walkways connect directly to the parking lots, and the playground is a decent size.
