Not much there. Just a place to take a small little walk. Quiet spot and safe. Locals park. Not much of a tourist spot.

Great natural resource for birding, walking, etc. It does have a shoreline to see shorebirds etc. Trails are paved and stoned.

You can wade in the water but it isn't recommended you swim in the water. It isn't very sandy. Head to Nickle Plate Beach up the road. it is still a do not miss though! Enjoy!
