One of my favorite spots in our area. Great place to spend the day or even if you're short on time and just want to get a little walk in.

What a lovely spot. We went to the park for a picnic. There are many picnic tables and benches. The it's also a very clean bathhouse. Lots of parking. The beach was closed to swimming but we knew this based on their website.
