They have just refresh this park to be much more enjoyable for the whole family. The park has things to climb, great swing, tennis court, and of course a lovely beach.

Great spot for sunbathing or taking the kids to play on the grass or the animal structures. I go for the All Japanese car show as I work for Honda and like to see previous customers and some crazy cars.

A perfect place for spending a day with other family members. Kids will love the beach side and the octopus slide. There are a lot to do for kids.

Low tide or high tide. This is a must. It is such a beautiful place to go to if you want to sit and relax at the beach,walk your dog or just relax and listen to the ocean.

This little park has a little something for everyone, it is located along the water! There are changing rooms/ washrooms / shower area to clean off the sand from the beach. Picnic tables nicely located around the play areas, which have lots of great activities...More
