This beach was very clean and family friendly. You can set up your chairs on the grass and then go play in the sand and the water away from your stuff so you don’t leave with sand all over you. The kids have to take a swim test in order to go in the deep area. If the have graduated 8th grade they don’t need to take the test

Great water pipes feature for kids. Slides for both beginner and expert swimmers. Great lane dividers for shallow amd and deep ends. Good burgers and other yummy treats. Bring some lawn chairs or beach towels. Kinda pricy but sonetime they had buy one get one half off. Look forward too going in hot summers.

We were at adult float on Sunday morning and I brought my sister from MN to the “beach”. On Sat/Sun morning 9-11 they have adult float (bring your favorite float). My sister dropped her swim fin in the deep part (15 feet). She asked a life guard if at anytime it could be recovered from bottom. Immediately 2 guards came over and started diving for it. Yeah!! They recovered it. My sister was very happy. Now she knows those fins don’t float. Thanks guys!

This is such a fun place to catch rays. It combines the sand of a beach with the convenience of a pool. The refreshments are good or you can pack up a picnic to enjoy, or a combination.
