We visited on a Sunday afternoon so the park was packed. We waited for a parking space. We wanted to walk a bit and stopped to watch the skateboarders. Lots of kids on the playground, people grilling and enjoying a great day and the park....More

It was a nice place to visit with friends that were there and play. It was really crowded, but that was expected.

We just stop for a minute as it was very windy. It did not seemed to bother anybody else. Children were having a great time, women were barbequing, couples were walking around. Well taken care of park

We visited Monday, January 29, 2018 around 11AM. Peaceful views while walking on the path. Watch for ant mounds on the grounds. There are playgrounds, skate park, nice long pier and viewing spots. Not crowded on our visit.

Good park for walking/running/biking. Along bayfront. Many areas for picnics. Good playground for children. Has a skate area. You may fish from shore or from dock. Family oriented.

It's a green area along the street or you can say, between the water and the street. Clean, some palm trees, a statue "Wind Dancer" in the middle of the park and there's a parking area, too.
