  • After so called huge renovation, this place is a jewel. Although, I am not sure of the effect of the previous landfill, I am trusting the City to protect it's community.  more »
  • On a sunny day, bring you kids or grand kids here and enjoy a picnic, walking on the beach or the trail, watching the plane landing or taking family photos. Beautiful beaches. It will be a memorable.....  more »
  • Great place to bring visitors or picnic with friends and families. See planes land and there is a small museum on the hill. Great photo opportunities. You can walk down to the wharf and there are nice restaurants nearby after your walk. We had a company party here, which was a great place for an event with 50+ people. The shelters were nice and offered plenty of space for food and shade. The park admission fee of $6 per car was paid by the company, and I’m not sure if i’d pay that myself to come back.
  • It's been here a long time. Well used, lots of mature trees, harbor, playgrounds, picnic areas, bike paths, fishing. Something for everyone.
