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.
