This beach and picnic area is so quaint and clean.There are a lot of tables and barbque grills. All members of the family can enjoy it. And then there's the water for those who love to swim. Great family fun.

We have taken the kids and gone without them and love this little park. The water can be choppy but it's hardly crowded and has great views.
