There are also basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts. Picnic shelters make it a great place for a picnic. There are also restrooms, showers, and foot rinses that you can use after taking a swim. Parking and pier admission fees apply. A beach wheelchair is available on a first come, first serve basis.
