Neptune is in a perfect locale, in front of the beach. Next to a summer concert venue, with performances for free. A local '80s cover band, The Deloreans, play here.

The statue of Neptune is 34 feet tall and weighs 12.5 tons. It was unveiled along the beach in 2005. The bronze scowling Neptune holds a trident in one hand and a turtle in the other. Sculptor Paul DiPasquale also created the Arthur Ashe statue in Richmond in 1992, which is generally loathed as a work of art, but he seems to have gotten Neptune right.
