Sundays at the park had ice cram for sale and fireworks with live music. It was a great inexpensive way to spend the night. We went back to use the playground. It was big and fun for a 2nand a 5 year old.

This park was behind our hotel and we visited it more than once. It is very clean. Has a nice play area for kids and a beautiful pier you can walk out on. The fireworks for Sundaes in the Park were really good too!
