We just stop for a minute as it was very windy. It did not seemed to bother anybody else. Children were having a great time, women were barbequing, couples were walking around. Well taken care of park

We visited Monday, January 29, 2018 around 11AM. Peaceful views while walking on the path. Watch for ant mounds on the grounds. There are playgrounds, skate park, nice long pier and viewing spots. Not crowded on our visit.
