Lovely companion to the Fisherman's Memorial. Visually touching to see the wives and children watching their husbands and fathers go out to see and awaiting their safe return.

Take a walk on the Boulevard and enjoy all the views! Easy parking allows you to walk the Boulevard and listen to the Ocean.

It was sobering to see this after visiting the fisherman’s memorial as it is often forgotten who is left behind and with some 10000 fisherman that have died from this town it is quite devastating.

Beautifully made and deserved. Surrounded by many flowers, its a great place to see and walk. It has a great "boardwalk" that is visited by many local and tourists alike. I would recommend it to anyone that visits this town,

This was new as of 2002, It was really well done. The entire length of this coast area has beautiful flowers and a path for walkers/joggers/bikers and dog walkers. It has really been cleaned up and is a beautiful backdrop to a beautiful day!
