    A nice little park with great views. A good spot to have a picnic or walk through the sand. A great place to watch the sunset that’s basically in town.

    Cute, small. Gorgeous views and a nice place for a smaller gathering. Private property on one side, steep cliffs and beach on the other, so please be considerate and careful!

    No further mention of the whale other than the name of the park, sadly. Great view of the bridge and dunes though. Flat pathway to a forested picnic area with a big chair and benches. Some beach down below as well. Not much parking.

    Unfortunately, this place is literally a misnomer. Yes, there is a famous story about a whale that washed ashore near Florence, and which was dynamited in an effort to remove the rotting carcass from the beach, BUT THIS PARK IS NOWHERE NEAR THAT BEACH! This park is on a riverbank, not the ocean, and the site of the exploding whale is actually miles away, and not even visible from this location. The park was named because it opened in 2020, around the 50th anniversary of the historic exploding whale event. But aside from the name, it has nothing to do with the exploding whale, and oddly, despite the name, there are no references or informational panels that explain why. I got the answer by asking a local who was walking her dog. It’s a nice little park for that, but it has no historic or particular scenic beauty to make it worth a separate visit.

    Picnic benches and kick it spots aplenty. Good place to chill and have a snack. Highly recommend.
