I have taken my children, my grandchildren to play in this park and fly kites. Sometimes we fish off the pier. There's a rollerblading slab of concrete for those who like to do that. And a playground for young children. One can picnic. Sometimes there are concerts. I live 8 houses from this park and take a three mile walk... More

We visited the park on a quiet and sunny Sunday morning, and it was clean and clear. The playground area was well kept and the overall area was serene and beautiful. It was a much larger park than we initially thought it was, and it was nice to see a space right on the water that's accessible to everyone and... More

Cole Park is great for a family or going solo. The play ground area is well kept. The skateboard platform was constantly busy. There is a great walk/run/bike path. Due to the construction around part of the park it hinders your activities. The large mermaid sundial is beautiful in front of the tall city buildings. No matter if it's 100... More

There are plenty of covered picnic tables and grill to use. There is a skate park for skateboarding. There is a fishing pier. This park has great views of the... More

My family loves this park! We have 2 younger kids and they can play for hours on the playground. There are multiple large play structures that intertwine. There are also bathrooms on-site (big bonus), covered sitting/picnic areas, skatepark, and a long pier to walk/fish off of. Great little retreat at no cost.

The park had something to do for everyone. There's a skate park, a playscape for kids to climb, slide, and swing on. Pathways for riding a bike, skating or jogging, it's right off the water with a rocky shore and there's a pier where ppl can fish and stations set up for cleaning the fish. There's lots of lighting at... More

We had a blast taking our 3 kiddos to the park and then to the free outdoor live music on Thursday and free outdoor movies on Friday. It's a great setting right off of the ocean. Cool breezes, free sunsets, and great times!

Bring the kids and enjoy a Saturday in the sun for fun. Walk, run, play or fish....bring your own pole and bait and surf fish....catch of the day, or sandcastles in the sand and dreams in the clouds...from your towel.
