Great park. Many walking and bike paths. Excellent parking. Campsites available. Bring a picnic lunch and stay for hours. Plenty of lawn, shade or sun, beach or stone, many benches in many locations. Fabulous location on the bay.

Views are amazing. Can't beat the biking within the park and along the ocean bay. Family fun and picnic tables. Some open areas for flying a kite.

This is a gorgeous park, very spacious and un-congested, although lots of people pass through. Bring your bike, or bring your car and park, and do a picnic, or just take a walk. It's so beautiful, a Bristol treasure.

We stopped here for a walk and to view the area. The views of the Ocean are excellent, walking places well maintained. This is well worth the stop.

Beautiful area, great for a picnic or even a walk. Pet friendly and there are plenty of places to walk if you are trying to escape from the outside world.

Are there designated paved bike trails? If so, how many miles of trails. Is there only one designated parking area and what would be the address of the parking lot?
