Playing works up an appetite so, be sure to refuel with delicious eats from Birdies Biscuits , Cooperage , Hardena, and Little Baby's Ice Cream . And, for adults, signature drinks and cocktails from local distilleries will be available at the Pier’s bar!
Free and open to the public.
Dogs on leashes are welcome.
