The park features a shore on the Pacific Coast, with fishing, crabbing, and clamming opportunities in season. Beachcombing is always popular.
The park received its name from a plotting done while it was in private ownership. The proposed development was to be called Pacific Pines. The park was created to establish permanent public access to the beach.
