We had a lovely walk on the beach and got some amazing views and pictures of the Bay Bridge! There is a price per car and potential for the location to get very crowded. more »
This was my 1st time at this park. Very nice, peaceful and relaxing place to take your family. My children loved it...I appreciate people who love doing their jobs. The man that greeted us was very joyful, while being professional, welcoming us. I gave it only four stars because at some point the sand gets really hot depending on weather. But other then that. Excellent place to go by yourself or with love ones.
The beach was a nice view and the kids were able to play. Was a colder day and the water was as well. Still nice beach and lots of room. The playground was the big attraction for my children. Nice sets and the ground was matted instead of mulch which was a nice feature. The sets are good for all kids if all ages as well.
