This is a great place to hang out on a nice day. There is lots to do and see. You are not far from restaurants if you get hungry. The beach s great with things to do for kids.

Lovely views and a nice buzz about the park. It has a pretty marina with lots of rentals and a nice walking path through to waterfront park. Great for kids as it has an inflatable water park
