“A Diamond in the Rough.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

The lawns are cut weeds, which flood partially at lunar high tides. The same rocks are in the swim area decade after decade. Could be removed at low tide in a couple days. Water is deep enough for swimming only within two hours of high tide, never dredged. $20 daily admission for such a park is way overpriced. I never see city higher ups using the park, so I don't think it is a priority. They must go to the private spots and this is only for the commoners.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Love this place. Usually not crowded -- summer weekends the exception. Great place to walk, hike the dogs. Recently underwent a major overhaul, following terrible damage by Sandy.
