Citizens and neighbors care for this park adjacent to Shorecrest High School. It provides welcome respite and fresh air for the Briarcrest neighborhood.

Over 15 acres of native growth towers over the path running through the park.

There are still remnants of officers’ housing and other facilities from the WWII era Naval Hospital that served and healed injured sailors and marines.
