  • Generally nice park, with the only exception being large crowds.
  • Being a very large park, you will always find something nice at Point Pleasant. Experience the best of both worlds here with landmark attractions for historical learning, and small scenic crannies for personal bonding. This park is the perfect setting for long walks with loved ones.
