Though the years the types of people it draws in is bad for the city. People litter , do not respect the rules of the walkers on the walking path and people bring their big dogs on it as well

Nice place to take a swim, have a cookout or just to relax. Don't plan on jumping in the waves as there aren't any.

It is one of the few parks that the city rake, clean up and maintain. It does not contaminate with bacteria as often as the rest.
