Plan Your Visit

Winter brings changes in the landscape, and can be a wonderful time to visit the park. Just make sure to dress appropriately, the temperature near the shore can be at least ten degrees colder than elsewhere, and the wind chill makes it seem even colder. You can check out our program guide for winter which includes walks, hikes and other things to do. And, oh, please don't swim until the lifeguards are back on Memorial Day Weekend.
