I love City Beach. Great park, picnic areas, ball courts, etc... Everything you'd want from a park. The sandy beach itself is good too. The problem is the geese. Sure, they're fun to look at, but look what you are stepping in anywhere you go....More

We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the beach in September. Beach was clean and lots of fun for everyone. We highly recommend the Trinity restaurant, also. And the boat cruises!

The city needs to figure this out. There were huge families setting up tent villages and sleeping cots, trash blowing around, kids feeding seagulls which were swarming everyone, cigarette butts, goose poop EVERYWHERE, trucks driving through the parking lot with boat trailers trying to back...More

Suggest a traveler best check on local events. We traveled there without checking local event and all of down town area was blocked off do to a large event running race. We could not get to the beach so went on up North.
