This park is located directly on the ocean, and looks out across the water to Plymouth Beach. There is a small section of sandy beach, as well as a salt marsh. It is very common to see shore birds here throughout the year. Look for the osprey nest in the salt marsh. The park is most open and grassy, but there are also some shade trees.
