Went here for the "Wheels Across the Pond" car and motorcycle show. Had a great day. This park has large pavilions for eating, nice clean restrooms, easy access off of A1A and plenty of parking.

Great spot to park and get to the beach. Restrooms close by, across the street. Sidewalks to access beach here and down the road. Some dogs here, nice to see them playing in the water.

Hi The trail starts where the tennis courts are in the back.. Go right ...that is where the mile markers start. The park itself is the whole area where the amphitheatre is and the picnic stations.
Are dogs allowed at the Seabreeze amphitheater for events? Thinking of going to the Shakespeare Festival July 14th Thanks

I do not know how many tables and there are several pavilions of different sizes. The smaller pavilions have 2 tables and I would guess the larger one has 6-8 tables. I would call the Park District and ask this question.
