This is a great place to go for couples, for families or just by yourself. Very pet friendly, many things going on here from pickleball to musicians jamming. Restaurants a short walk away.

Plenty of special events: concerts, races, always something to do. Nice water cooling park, boat harbor, on the scenic water walk, boat rentals, charter boats, restaurants, shops, bike rentals, visitors center, public restrooms, walking distance to more restaurants, hotels, and historic downtown.

This is such a great place to bring the family. People pay a lot of money to go to resorts and have the view you can get here for free! Fun waterpark for younger kids too.

I live in the area and often walk through this park. The park was developed after the onslaught of Hurricane Charlie in 2004. It is well done. Nice fountain area for kids to play, adequate bath houses, and wonderful walkways for exploration along the harbor....More
