Great place to hang out. Terrific beach, playground equipment and restrooms. Beach isn’t dog friendly, but you can sit on the steps and take in the view.

Park is right on the beach with a great playground. Could spend the whole day there between the play set, open area and beach.

Clean park with a pathway the leads to the beach. There are small bbqs and picnic tables for day use. There is also a swimming pool but it was closed at the time we visited in June.

Shamel Park is the place for many local activities. It has a playground, a seasonal swimming pool, and a large grassy area. Fun place for families.

We had our two Shih Tzu puppies (3 & 4 months old) to play in the park. THEY WERE IN HEAVEN! I have driven past this area for many years but haven't had a real good reason to stop. SO happy I made the effort!
