We walked with our family through this location. It was fantastic. Seeing all the different well behaved dogs was a joy ! The water, dock yards and colors of leaves turning were all great. Would highly recommend going for a walk at Point Pleasant Park

On a mild late September day, it was a perfect place to hang out, relax and observe the locals. Like the entire city, it is very clean and beautifully maintained. Recommended.
