I loved it it was a great thing for the whole family for the kids there is a playground that's great but after 30 mins my child was very thirsty and we forgot the drinks so that's the a problem then for the adults there's some peddle bouts and for the elderly there is some tour bouts and last but not least for the teens the lagoon great not to cold and not to hot

We stopped here for about twenty minutes late afternoon. I walked on the path a little ways; it's paved and very nice. The beach/swim area looked like fun; my kids really wished they had brought their swimsuits. The water was an interesting color, almost green. There was a jetty that people were jumping off into the water. A boat cruise was just pulling out as we arrived; I wish we had gotten there earlier so we could've taken the tour.

Definitely the best thing to do in Carlsbad City Limits. Great park, lots to do, and as soon as we got out of the Jeep, an ice cream truck pulled up, and I got a snow cone as big as my head. Now, if Carlsbad would put this kind of energy into their restaurants, I might consider going back!

I added this on my vacation's itinerary due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor. When we got to this park we just kept on driving. What a joke! This may be a nice place for locals to walk their dogs or to get some exercise, but it's not worth the stop for out of towners...spend your time at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park or at Sitting Bull Falls and skip this place!
