Stroll the Boardwalk at Bonita Beach Park

When you want a great spot to gather with friends for an outdoor cookout on the beach, the park has shelters with grills and picnic tables. The park also has a playground that local families love to frequent. Special events are often held at the park on weekends. You can join bird watching expeditions, historical tours, or nature hikes.
