Located along Ocean Drive in the heart of Corpus Christi, Cole Park is a family-friendly park perfect for a few hours of fun. The waterfront park features a large playground, amphitheater, ample green space for recreational play and a trail for walkers, runners and cyclists. If you’re looking for a place to picnic, Cole Park includes grills on-site. Free parking is available on either side of the park.
Cole Park is also home to the Corpus Christi Skatepark, a 10,000 square foot concrete skatepark beside the beach that features a street section and bowl section. If you’re looking for something a little less adventurous, consider stopping by the amphitheater in the summer for the Bay Jammin Concert & Cinema Series.
