Lovely park, worth the visit. Walk through the woods from the Crawfordsborn Inn. Or you can park in the lot by the beach.

Extensive park with cafe and visitor centre. This time we walked to Bangor and back along the coastal path. Great views and no steep gradients, though able opportunities for scrambling on the various beaches, as desired.
