Long Description:
The park is relatively small but packed with structures, swings, and slides. Directly from the park, there is an open view of the sea, about 500m away.

I am not exactly sure of the operating hours. But the park does close, compared to many others in the area that seem to always open. I can only guess that it opens at 09:00 until dusk.

There is a large park immediately next to this one that accommodate families to have picnics or to just stroll around.

There is a trail from the park down to the rocky shore. Note that the trail cross an active train track. The beach is rocky but many people swim wearing water-proof shoes.

In the South Corniche area, about 10 minutes walk south from the park is a variety of activities:

- Access to the water to walk on the beach and fish

- Several restaurant immediately on the cliff over the water. The favorite morning dish is Fattay (chickpeas, tahini, yogurt, and bread).

- Water park was under construction in December 2010.
