“OK but not great”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Conveniently located, maintained OK, but nothing to do except watch the water flow by. Dockage area in need of clean up, although not heavily used.

“Peaceful and Beautiful”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

A lovely area with a really great place to eat on the water. We had a delicious shrimp dinner there! The shrimp boats are there on the water which we watched coming in and going out. There are some tabbly walls remaining from the old town from years past which lend a nostalgic feel. We met some teenage boys who stopped to talk to us and they were very friendly and informative. A lovely area.

“Pleasant Place to Pass the Time”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Darien is home to the largest shrimp fleet in the area and makes a nice background when viewing the river from the park. There is ample seating and a small covered pier-like area over looking the docks. The grounds are well kept and convenient to parking. If you want to eat or drink there, get something before you go. It is a nice place to take a break and relax.

“Great spot to enjoy one of Georgia's tidal waterfront river.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a lovely grassy park along the Darien river. It is quite scenic with docked shrimp boats. Many pictures are taken here at sunset which is often spectacular. It's only two minutes off of I-95 so it's a great place to stretch your legs if you are driving a long distance.
