  • Not my favorite park during the day, but this dark sky park is fantastic once the sun goes down! We love stopping by on a clear night and enjoying the stars above. Have seen some incredible shooting stars as well. I highly recommend taking a look yourself. The bugs in summer can be a bit rough, however, so come prepared. I would also highly recommend red lights (instead of white flashlights) because this will help your eyes stay adjusted to the dark.
  • A showcase park with trails and beach.
