This is kind of a secret special park. All year long there is a special atmosphere at this hidden gem.

Lots of walking area, grassy areas, picnic tables and benches. You can walk to the beach or stay up above. A good visit for 30-60 minutes.

Within walking distance of downtown PT (if you don't want to bother with parking) the park is beautifully laid out, with view and access to the beach. Swings and mini-playground for kids. Great picnic place too.

Secret Garden... Come in the Springtime for a magical display of color & beauty. Peaceful meandering, picnic and relax. Follow trails to beach access as well. Who knew this was here? Hidden in an old Victorian neighborhood, sweet little place to enjoy.

Have a picnic, overlook the water, even get married! I know two people who did and they loved it. There is a gazebo in the center of the park, for this type of occasion. There's also a playground area for the kids. Very sweet place!
