I love the time they placed into telling you the history of what took place here. It's also a beautiful park and the best beginning or end to a walk along the waterfront. I always park across the street and walk down to Point Ruston...More

Tricky to get to because we had to turn off Ruston Way abruptly after we saw the sign. No fee, some parking available, also paddle boards for rent. Interesting pavilion and rock sculptures, and important history behind the park. Sad that it was vandalized.

It was a nice place to walk. Wasn't too hot near the beach. A couple was having their wedding here. There's great food nearby.
