A must see for the traveler, this massive park features a beautiful area in the front for events they frequently have there, or private events like weddings. They have a few beaches that have landings for kayak rentals and a fantastic view of the South Sound and the many islands that surround the Point. There is a dog park for big and small dogs located in the middle of the park where there is wonderful day hiking and scenic views as you drive the 5-mile loop.

The walking paths are kept nice and have beautiful scenery. There are small bodies of water with ducks, fountains, and beautiful statues. The playground structure is huge and very fun for kids. The spray ground has a lot of water fixtures and is so much fun for my kids and myself. There is a basketball court and large trees to have picnics under. There is a building of restrooms that are usually kept clean. I just love this park. Would recommend to anybody!
