Nice trail. Has several spots to park. Has public restrooms. Has a playground. Has a trail that is pet friendly. Has a beach at the end with paid parking. more »
We went here for our first beach day and returned every day! Great spot, great place to swim. Water is shallow and perfect for kids, there are paths to deeper water through the seaweed that are clear.... more »
Nice park. Beach is small and clean with lifeguards on duty. The water has a LOT of turtle grass. Bathhouse with restrooms and outdoor shower area. Ample parking. 5.00 per day. There also have paddle board,paddle boat water trikes and kayak rentals. Fun place to spend the day.
This is a very nice park just before the Howard Park Beach. There are tons of places to park for free, and a play set if you want to bring your kids around. It's a beautiful area to have a picnic or just get a feel for nature on the coast. Would recommend coming here.
