  • Looking for a nice, easy walk on a summer day, Cates Park is the place. Easy trails and lots of places to stop by the beach and take in the view.  more »
  • A bit out of the ways, this local park is nestled along the bay and is a great place to rest and/or have a picnic while taking in the views.  more »

  • Lots of ocean front to see here. Public boat launch. A dock I've seen people fishing from. Nice place to watch the sunset, in fall & winter the sun sets at a nice point on the horizon. Very busy on summer weekends, I recommend just driving straight to the overflow parking lot if arriving after 11am. Nice bicycle ride from here to Deep Cove.
  • Great park.. It has a nice playground and a lot of open green spaces so there lots of room for all..There’s a nice stretch of pebbly beach as well.. We saw a seal on our last visit so it not just popular with people..
