Project Description

Crescent City Harbor Beach

Crescent City Harbor Beach is a narrow beach that is protected from the wild ocean waves that batter the shoreline outside the jetties. At low tide the mud flats of Elk Creek are exposed as the water recedes. Beachfront Park is a large open grass park between Front Street and Howe Drive that makes this area great for families. The park has a disc golf course, horseshoe pits, a huge playground, and open lawns for other sports and activities.

In the park you’ll find the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center where visitors can see some of the marine animals they are rehabilitating.
