This is a beautiful park, well-maintained grounds, great for a picnic at one of the tables. The locals call this place "rich man's pond." We were there on a Sunday. It was a bit crowded, but really nothing compared to other weekend spots. We arrived before noon and had no trouble parking. When we were leaving an hour later, however, we noticed people having trouble finding places to park.
The pool itself was murky and a bit too warm. While some reviews will say this is a very large man-made pool, I beg to differ. It's so warm and murky on the side next to the park that people tend to swim near the ocean-fed end where the water is fresh and clear. We ended up swimming only briefly before rinsing off at the shower (the showers are okay). There weren't many fish to see if you're looking for snorkeling.
The cool thing about this park is that it's like a local swimming pool- where local families picnic and grill (there are barbeque's available, so bring your charcoal!) and there's a staff of lifeguards to make it a safe place for family swimming.
My rating of "very good" is a compromise between the tidepool (average) and the park setting (excellent).
