Don't go for the beach.. yes it is nice but $5 for one hour parking.. no way! Go for the rare and beautiful leucistic squirrel. If you are lucky you will see them: they are white and two live on the trees in the park. Best time for viewing between 4 and 5 pm.
Since my posting here, they created more free parking spaces. It is no longer for people who play tennis, as it used to be, but also for visitors. We have 2 hours free parking, and it is awesome.
We visited the park on a Sunday to shell the pile. I have been shelling for 30 years & have never seen a pile of shells like this. We had an exciting day & brought home many treasures.

Yesterday was our second visit to Phipps Ocean Park. The first time we went the water was breathtaking and we spent several hours there so I preloaded 3 hours into the meter (at $5 an hour).
