Nice park next to the water if you have some kids about 11 years or younger good place to come by and waste some time, maybe while you're waiting for a hotel room to get cleaned.. Its just before the entrance to Old Fisherman's Wharf.

We took our almost three year old grandson and had an absolute blast! So many options for fun at this park. It does need a little TLC but overall excellent. There is something for everyone!

My 6 and 10 year olds love this park. It is safe and clean with a variety of play ground equipment. There are large slides and a cool walking bridge. A short walk away is a little lake you can rent paddle boats on. I'd...More
