I have been here hundreds of times. As a child and as an adult. Now with children of my own. Laid back and quiet for the relaxing picknick or a short nature hike. 5 star for ease of access, relaxation, and entertainment for the kids.

The trails are quite varied. Some have a few steep hills others or rather easy. The walk to the beach is pretty easy close to the parking lot. A very nicely to take a nature break!
