The view of the coast is amazing and the walkway around it is in great shape! Nice they have bathrooms if you need them. And, it has a play area for the kids, that seems popular!

Not a lot of gym activities for the kids, but enough to entertain them. There is path along the bluffs that circles the park. Clean restrooms and easy in and out access. Great rest area.

Parking is marginal when there is not an event going on so I am guessing it will be difficult at best for this event.

The park is up on a bluff so there is no easy beach access that I could see. However, there were lots of dogs and their owners using the park!
