Took a group of 20 students there on a walking tour, and we had a pretty good time. The lighthouse and the beach are both pretty and so peaceful. The kids loved walking on the beach and skipping rocks on the water.

Discovery Park is very safe during the day. Lots of people, including kids, walking, jogging, biking, especially on a sunny day. We have never seen "homeless" folks in the park.
