Nice big venue. Free parking, clean bathrooms, easy access to everything and they blocked off the road in front of center to keep the kids safe.

Well designed for easy access in and out as well as bathrooms. Easy to find location not far from the beach. Parking is across the street with shuttle services. I found no issue with this venue. It was clean and well maintained.
