This was a great park for our very young children. Also had some interesting atttractions for adults. The boat is neat to see. Nice to look out at the ships anchored. And free is always great.

Small information booth memorial located in a nice greenspace with children's park attached. Street parking is hit and miss but a short walk from many other locations with larger parking lots. Nice space to visit along cow bay!

Remembered hearing about the Japanese boat being found. Really nice display and memorial. The walk with the bricks was also interesting. Good to remember those lost at sea.

Stop for a minute and read about the boat under the roof. All sorts of things wash up here on the west coast.
