Beautiful park with water view and a train. Great for family pinics. There are play parks for the kids. You can go fishing or crabbing from the pier or take a train ride thru the park.

We walked a fair distance to get here and it was pretty hot. Dogs loved seeing geese and herons. Chasing squirrrls. Pets must be leashed and roads are narrow here. They launch boats here onto the Elizabeth River

We went to this charming park to feed the ducks, but then there were only 2 ducks! The rest were geese. Then when we threw the bread seagulls attacked the ducks and geese to steal the bread.

As we are having pretty pleasant weather a trip to the park was in perfect order for the day. I met a few friends with kids/relatives and we spent a lovely day relaxing and enjoying outdoor fun!

Very nice family oriented park, everything is concentrated into one area, the playground, the Food Grill, the outdoor amphitheater. they all are within a few paces away from each other. The scene is awesome, its a peaceful park tucked away from it all.
