We have gone here for picnics as well as peaceful walks on the pier. We will sit under the gazebo to watch the waves after our workday. We would recommend this to everyone for anytime of the week.

The park is next to the marina. The beach is fairly big. The water looked clean. We were there on a Friday late afternoon and it was a bit overcast. Not crowded. Very peaceful. Many boats coming and going. Enjoyed our brief visit.

I really enjoyed seeing Lake Ontario and this beautiful beach park. So clean and well maintained. The marina was fun to see and we were able to eat lunch in a waterfront restaurant. Glad we visited.
