A nice park that gets a lot of use by families. Two picnic shelters can be reserved for parties. Two nice play areas keep children entertained along with several short walking trails. An interpretive nature center is interesting. A boat ramp and a dock along Julington Creek make this a popular place.

This is very nice park right on the water with a small pond for ducks. It has a nice playground for children and a small picnic area with BBQ grills and a boat launch. Not real large but very nice with walking trails for adults or older children.

My son loves the swing sets for kids here. We have been to a few parties here and you can reserve the picnic areas. It's a great area to let kids play in. There is also a dock that you can go out on. Great place to see the sunset. There are also some trails and a public boat ramp... More

I've been a frequent guest of the park for may years. Living nearby I have taken advantage of the boat ramp since it's opening. I took our dog's for walks and my son to the playground since he was a baby. He is now in college. There are plusses and negatives about the park, but overall it's reliably a decent... More

This lovely little park is tucked out of the way and mostly a shaded walkway, wide concrete paths and wooden walk ways. We didn't see any manatees but signs (and others we met there) indicate that manatee sightings are a possibility. This is a great place to run, or stroll along.

Great park with plenty of area to walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The park has an intimate feel at dusk, which is fantastic. Also very family friendly.

Pass you may not be good enough to enjoy the park with its tennis minivan driving mom morons. Go somewhere else. Just a bunch of snobby snitches!
