Tree Slab Of Renown

Google Map the park name to find it easiest. The 300 Coveland Street address is a block away from the park. The park has playsets and a gazebo that overlooks the bay. There is ramp access to the gazebo. Keep your eyes open for deer. We found them in plain sight at 2:30 in the afternoon.
