This park isn't as crowded as the main beach at Times square and there is parking (usually) although you have to pay. It's a little walk across the sand out to the water so you have to carry your chairs/cooler/etc for quite a way. The...More

Quiet, with shade, picnic areas, beach, trail, etc. We saw a very cool osprey nest with young. Beautiful views. Bathrooms, handicap ramps.
