This park is just off the beach, east of the start of the boardwalk.
Playground is medium-sized with fairly new looking equipment. There are some swings and a great web feature. There is a colorful climbing screen and nice sized slides.
There is pure sun on the play areas but shade provided for the sitting area. There is a nice breeze from the beach. Definitely don't forget the sunscreen. There are no restrooms but there is usually a port-a-potty.
The ground is sand and soft. It tires the kids out. Bring pails and shovels.
GOOD FOR: Fun in the sun and bringing kids of different ages.
BEST FEATURE: There is a path around the playground for the kids to run or Moms to push a stroller and get exercise.
YOU SHOULD KNOW: There is no parking so you have find a spot on the street. This is difficult on weekends and prime summer weekdays. Also, the playground is hot and there are no water fountains. Bring your own water (BYOW).
WORTH A LONG DRIVE: Yes, if you go to the beach too.
