Halyburton Park is so beautiful; lots of wooded areas, lovely picnic areas, walking/jogging trails, & a wonderful place to have a picnic, family reunion, or any outdoor activity. Parking is plentiful; it's safe, and such a treasure for bird watching.

This is one of the nicest city parks. Great walking trails -- a big paved loop and lots of unpaved trails over the dunes and through the woods. There is also a nice playground for the little ones, a park building and restrooms.
