  • Revised! I had no idea what this place looked like because I'd only been here at night. It's a perfect venue to watch a night launch. Today I came during daytime and after seeing this park I'll return often. Park facing the beach for a fantastic view. You are steps from the ocean and behind you are picnic tables, grassy play areas, rest rooms and a pavilion, with a playground across the street. Perfect for children.
  • We had a very enjoyable experience today at this park. The park was clean and well maintained with several picnic areas. All the picnic areas we're covered and multiple grills are available to clean and ready to use. Pet station stocked with disposable bags as well. The parking was close by with multiple benches for relaxing by the ocean without actually getting on the beach. Very peaceful and relaxing afternoon. Ample restrooms fully stocked, with showers available right outside. It was a good day and parking was free.
