The best part about the park in the location. It's right on the water. There are a decent number of people. It's pretty clean. And you are right by the seals.

This park is teally beautiful! The trees are extremely beautiful. Kids were having a blast here and you can go down to the beach to see the seals or look for crabs,etc. A lot of shadow to sit and picnic or relax!

You can experience just about anything you can imagine here. Sun rises, sunsets, school children on field trips, people walking their dogs to sea lions.
