“A great place in the summer”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Lots of sand and water, and people watching is the best here, especially watching the youngsters in their swim wear.

“Good sports, activeities and nice beach”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

There is always something going on between Oak street and North Aveneu beach. Great to run, ride a bike, roller blade or just stroll along the water front. Great views of the city.

“Fun at the beach”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had a g,reat time with the kids at North Ave. Beach. A little hard to navagate parking, but not impossible. Beach is clean, changing facilities and restrooms clean. Felt comfortable with lifeguards watching the kids in the water, but not sure they would be real effective in saving an adult!

“So much more than a beach”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I gave it a very good because the parking there sucks. Take the North Avenue bus down and you can avoid the frustration of parking blocks away and walking. Once you are there, you can see volley ball tourneys and have some of the best people watching.
