It's a place that worth a visit. You can park you car and go for waking through the shore. A good place for meeting friend and prepare a barbecue.

This was a great place for the whole family. The kids loved the playground and the beach. There is free parking out side the park, if you don't mind an 8 minute walk. Bathroom where decent.

good place for walking under trees in the park and good place for swimming. Of course the water is a little bit dirty, but in hot weather it doesn't mutter.

This is a great place to visit Saturday morning with the kids. They can play soccer, play on the playground or walk on a beach. All this while airplanes are landing practically every minute (you can smell the fuel the moment you arrive).
