My wife and I participated in the Santa 5k, which traversed the park. I'd have to say from what we saw of the park, it's very nice. They seem to take good care of the area.

It was nice to stroll around the paved paths in this park on the bay. The views are lovely and there were many water birds. It's a tranquil setting and it wasn't crowded when we visited on a hot summer's day. It was very clean.
