well worth the visit to see the lighthouse, walk the nature trails, or go to the beach. Large parking lot. Trails go past several ponds with ducks, geese, and swans.

The park has some great wooded walks, though the marshes, around ponds and down the beach. History and nature. Climb the lighthouse if you dare.

If you like watching for birds its great place. The park has nice beach and nice walking trails. One of the best part is FREE PARKING. It was nice to just relax and walk on the sand.

Very nice park with visitor center and bathrooms. Big parking lot and platform for bird watching. We hiked all 3 trails most of which was a boardwalk and included some docks and platforms to bird watch. Ponds also along the trail.
