There's a parking charge. There's a restroom next to the parking lot. The beach is a very short walk away from the parking lot. There's picnic tables. A very short walk is an historic building, "The Little Red Schoolhouse". It's worth looking at.

Stopped by the park the other day. The beach and water are very nice. Good place for families and for just taking a walk by yourself.

This place tends not to get too busy. The only issue can be the parking and make sure you pay or you will get a ticket! Nice for a family but bring your shade or you will get fried all year !
