We visited on Mothers Day 2017 after canoeing around the bay and springs. The beach is small and the swimming area too but it was a great time.

This is a small park with playground, picnic tables and sand by an inlet. It's right in a residential neighborhood and quiet. You do have to pay to park in the lot adjacent, but it's a beautiful spot for lounging. Beach area is small.

There was no sign when we were there. There were numerous swimmers and classes (scuba and snorkeling). We snorkelers for quite some time.
Is there trailer parking we trailer our kayaks?
