Haven't seen a really good sunset yet. I'll keep trying. It's a nice spot. Never more than a handful of people there and there's a small playground. Wouldn't call it a destination but if you're close or passing by during sunset it's probably worth a stop

Great place to watch the planes come in and out. Also a good place to bring some food to eat while you’re watching! It’s been here a long time but oh so worth it!

I love coming here and I often bring my young son. There is a small (but rather underwhelming) play area for toddlers with a sand pit. A building partially obscures the runway view but otherwise it's a lot of fun. The deck is pretty well shaded which is nice on sunnier days.

My husband visited this place yesterday. He says it's a good place to see the planes flying. The frequency of planes coming here is definitely less. So you need to spend few hours in hand to enjoy the show. The place is sunny. There is place to stand. The places is vibrant. The place is definitely good for kids. The place is good for oldies too. It is easily accessible. Good washrooms

Sweet, spacious deck with benches to relax and watches the airplanes & the sunset. With plenty of grass and a small park below the deck, this is a perfect place to bring kids as well. Make sure to arrive before dusk, as we’ve had to turn around a few times to a closed gate.

Fun place to watch planes take off and land. There is a small playground for kids. Free to enter & park. It could be more strategically placed however, there is a huge building blocking much of the view.
