  • I live in the area and it is very sad that when I go to the park 4 times per week that all I see is trash and profanity around the beautiful park. Tons of broke balloons and trash fills the park...

  • Went fishing but didn't get a bite, might try it at night.
  • Me and my wife had a great time fishing on the pier. Not only did we enjoy watching the jets flying overhead from the air force base, but the people visiting and the fishermen were all nice. My wife just likes to watch me fish and talk to people, so I know if she wants to go again, it is a nice free visit. For you fishermen, I ended up rigging up a small jig on light tackle to match the bait fish I saw. I had a blast catching a bunch of lady fish, a few rainbow runners a small Spanish Mackerel. We had a good time.
