  • We went snowshoeing in this park. If I had it to do again, I would get crampons and hike the trails. They were well groomed and beautiful!

  • For a city, I guess the beach is okay. Pretty sad that you can’t even swim there because the water is so polluted. On any day that has nice enough weather to head down, you’re not the only one with that plan and the parking is generally always full unless you get lucky. So then we decided to bike the next time so parking wasn’t a problem.. but for some ridiculous reason, bikes are not allowed in the park??? And you cannot even walk with them- WALK! We’re all trying to be greener and more environmentally friendly and you cannot even walk with a bike in the park.. And! And I can’t make this up. You’re not allowed to hang a hammock in the park 😂 it causes zero damage to a tree, and we’re just trying to be immersed in nature, and that’s not even allowed. But there was no issue with the person next to us smoking 👍🏽 I think parks should be about getting people out and into nature as naturally as possible and with all of these rules it’s just sad, and Society has gone too far.
  • Beautiful park with a nice walking path. If you continue to the cliffs, there are an incredible set of stairs that lead you to a quiet beach with lots of wildlife.
