It was interesting to see where the land fell into the sea after the 1964 earthquake. Lots of mosquitoes and do not go walking around without bug spray. The park is worth maybe 15 or 20 minutes of your time.

We had not been here since 1991 so the place had really changed. Very beautiful and scenic. Very tourist friendly.

We appreciated this park, and would recommend it to other visitors. Demonstrates the extent of the damage generated by 1964 earthquake.

This has very cool history of the 1964 earthquake but is July the mosquitoes can be monstrous! It is along the Costal Trailway.
