Parkside Aquatic Park is a lovely park. We visited on a summer weekday morning and it was all ours- just perfect. However, I'm positive this park is crowded on weekends. It's too great not to be.
I really liked the play structures right on the sand. The structure on the rubberized turf is clearly for the younger set (ages 2-5), but the location is perfect for supervision from either the beach or the picnic benches. And I can totally see older kids playing on the red structure completely set in the sand.
Besides the two play areas there's a sand volleyball court, a boat launch with kayak rentals and a snack bar, and lots of picnic tables among the palm trees. But I have to warn that the beach and water will probably attract the kids like a magnet!
