Once a nice location to take a family for the day, now charges for parking. Don't venture into the water, e-coli levels are always high.

It's OK. But find the people there haven't been out in public or leave under a rock. Rude and no consideration for others. Hello. you are in public, not in your backyard.

It is very pretty here. Great trails. Very spacious. Bus goes there. Great place to spend the day to relax. Terrific festivities. Tragically, the beach is down river from treatment plant. It will never be clean.

The early Monday morning crowd was sparse but the wide open beach, actually several beaches, were amazingly clean, spacious, very inviting. The only problem is the last km, which is gravel and not in very good shape, especially if you are riding a bike.

Not to my knowledge. You only have to pay for parking.
