Most people come here to swim or hang out at the beach but the park has a nice trail around the quarry. The park is clean and the staff is friendly. Lifeguards on duty at the beach and you have to pay to get in.

We live nearby and visit this pleasant man made beach often. My kids like it, and it's very manageable. Be forewarned, though, the lifeguards do "safety checks" every few hours, and you will need to exit the water completely for 20 minutes at 1:09, 3:00,...More

I have three children of varying age. I like the set up of the park because you can sit in the middle of the sand area to watch the little ones who play in the shallower end while also keeping an eye on the bigger...More
