We are so lucky to live close to Canatara park and walk the paths and trails. In the summer the beach is great, and lots of picnic areas

Been visiting this park since I was a kid. Lots of spacious areas for picnics and family gatherings. The beach is well maintained but the water is often cold. Great animal farm for kids.

great place for families to play, swim and explore. Almost no other people around inside the park, more by the water front but still had lots of room to swim and play without tripping over others
