Very nice park with lots of play areas for kids and dog friendly. This is a nice park to walk around. We were there in the off season and many of the attractions were unavailable. It was nice to walk around anyway.

I can't take my dog on the beach yet, so we look for good places to walk aside from on a sidewalk along a road. This park fits the bill.
