This is a wonderful spot to launch a kayak and access canals, King's Bay and the river by Three Sisters Springs. Parking is limited to get there early. Nice sandy bottomed launch next to a small beach. Very protected. In winter there are manatees all...More

We have launched our kayak from this public park several times. There is a beach/swimming area which is roped off and a sandy bottom kayak launch which is always busy. One can paddle to Three Sisters Springs to view manatee. Great park on the river...More

The city has completely transformed and modernized this park on Kings Bay. It has abundant parking ($5 fee); a nice protected sandy beach swimming area; and a really nice kayak launch. Three sisters spring is an easy paddle from here. Hundreds of manatees congregate in...More

Perfect area for the little ones to get out the wiggles from shopping and sightseeing. Great views of the bay, but watch the kids at the shoreline.

we were pleasantly surprised by all the upgrades to this park. Much easier to put kayak in water. Nice park to use for kayaking the bay.

This park looked nice, but it's very small. The parking lot is small; the beach is small; the picnic area is small. It's probably a great park for locals who can go when it's not busy and crowded.

I paid $5 for 2 hours but they may have changed it to $5 for the entire day. Best to call the park people to find out the exact amount.

There was no sign when we were there. There were numerous swimmers and classes (scuba and snorkeling). We snorkelers for quite some time.
