Wake up early, walk to the water and enjoy the sunrise with someone special. Stopping for bagels, coffee and orange juice beforehand recommended but not necessary.

Sorry, I just saw your question, I would have to say I doubt it would be open as it is a state holiday. Though you can likely walk through the park.
