A very nice park with great views of the ocean. Lots of room for children to run around and a great place just to sit. Great viewing area of the local boats going in and out.

I visit Independence Park frequently. I usually start my walk there and continue down Lothrip Street for about a half mile and then return to the park and take my chair out of my car and shut and enjoy the view. Love it there

I grew up in the area and have been to the park many times, for travelers it would be best for a short break to enjoy the view, there is a small beach, there are no facilities.
