There is plenty of covered sitting and benches for parents to sit while the children play. Jets are coming up in various places out of the concrete. (so no running or you might get skinned knees) You can visit the Pier Bait shop and even grab an ice cream. Head on out to the pier and watch the fishermen reel in a big catch. Or fish like my boys do. Regardless of how you spend the afternoon it is definitely breath of fresh air and a park built for family fun!
Also, there is a regular playground here to (but you get hot fast) it is right in the sun. The only thing that I do not like is there is no gate or fenced in area from the parking lot. I'm always worried about kids not paying attention and running into the road (just call me a worrier).
