A beautiful park, with lots of green, lots of shade trees, and paths to walk. All that and a beautiful beach.

We have been enjoying this area for 20 years plus. Always clean, well maintained with great security and tremendous parking lots. Beautiful long extensive beach...worth the trip from anywhere.
