Follow the winding trail and enjoy the 25 minute walk to the cobble and rock beach.  Far from the hustle and bustle of downtown, beyond the millions of things that keep us busy every day, there’s a whole other world that we barely notice.  And it’s all in a puddle.  When the tide goes out at Quarry Drive Park, you can visit this miniature world.  See what kind of marine life you can find in the tidal pools.
