I have been here on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunrise Services. It is a wonderful location for a group of up to 150 people to gather for special occasions or just come for the Sunset.

Awesome views of Lemon Bay and great boat ramp. Unfortunately a lot of homeless or drug use is going on in the park. Have found Homeless sleeping in the rest rooms, Hypodermic needles in the restroom and pavilion areas.

Small park with plenty of parking spaces some right up to the waters edge. Lovely views over the bay, quite exposed & was a bit windy the day we visited. Not many people around some walkers & some fishing, no amenities so bring refreshments.

Beautiful water views. Great wildlife. A true painter's paradise. Also has a boat launch that goes to the beautiful bay.

We stopped here for a little peace and quiet. Was a bit windy so not to many truck/trailers in the parking lot. We went to the point/end of the park to see what was happening. Not many folks around and no sailing or sculling going...More

This is where the boat launch is located but there is a good view of the bay. There are usually a few fishermen wading and fishing and there are typically some shore birds, gulls and terns.

A great park if you like to sit & listen to the waves hitting shore. Benches are placed in various locations & there are picnic tables & a covered pavillion complete with restrooms. Beautiful location.

A great place to watch a sunrise, sunset, have a picnic, launch a boat, take a walk on the old midden. The thought is that the Indian spirits protect Englewood and the surrounding area from hurricanes.

The dock is fine and the water level is normal. There was tree damage around Englewood but they were pretty lucky
