We stopped in here for a quick walk. We walked our dog for an afternoon. It’s well organized with signage. I could have spent much longer. Felt really safe as we walked and looked at everything in the park.

Walk all around the park and take in the view-beautiful and serene. There are lots of places to stop and relax while watching the bay. Dogs are welcome on many of the paths and there is a beach area that many visited while there.
