There's lots of lighting at... More

We had a blast taking our 3 kiddos to the park and then to the free outdoor live music on Thursday and free outdoor movies on Friday. It's a great setting right off of the ocean. Cool breezes, free sunsets, and great times!

My 3 years old son loved this park. We let him tire himself out before heading back to San Antonio . They have all kinds of obstacles for kids

This is a park next to the bay but there is no beach or access to get in. However you have a pier and a seawall so you can walk to the edge and see in the shallow bay up close.

Cole Park is a wonderful park with stuff for young kids as well as a concert venue and nice walking trail along the waterfront. Really beautiful place, but can get a bit sketchy at night.

Pier is interesting, and view of the bay is nice. The play area for little ones, appeared to be excellent. Overall the park could be better well-kept. Locals are very polite & friendly. City maintenance was at the park getting rid of graffiti on a Sunday, so that shows the city is serious about trying to be family friendly &... More
