Great playground with beautiful ocean view.

The playground is often very crowded, but our child loves it. The view of the bay and the constant breeze is great.

This park runs along a fairly impressive stretch of the gulf coast right in the right of CC downtown. Lots of friendly people on the day we visited, and yet the tranquility still comes through clealry. The park is manicured with all types of facilities, including restrooms, pier, skate board park, and kiddie park. Parking was easy.

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

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.
