Managed by The Swim Guide

This family-friendly park has many amenities and there is no shortage of things to do here. Once the site of a Coast Guard Station, the park now has a beach where visitors can swim (lifeguards are on duty during the summer), fish, canoe, or kayak. 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.
