  • Great beach for families. The waves aren't too rough but you can still body board and surf with long boards. Soak up the afternoon sun, watch a beautiful sunset then walk the strip and find a place to eat! It doesn't get much easier than that.
  • I love this park. I could easily spend all day in this area and sometimes do. Huge open green space. The zoo and the aquarium are here, and of course there is beach access. Great for picnics. Popular spot for walkers/runners. I see people walking their dogs here often. Rarely crowded. Often has events on the weekends like craft fairs or races. Some free parking, some paid.
