The boat ramp at the northern boundry is the Arlington Lions Ramp.  Plenty of parking. Finger piers can be "bumpy" when the tugs go by.

am I the only one that enjoyed blue cypress a lot more when it was just this huuuge beautiful park where you could walk whereever you wish without a care in the world?  I mean yeah there were golfers, but we just kept away from each other and let them practice.  It was really nice though, because you could just walk your dogs wherever.  Now it's become this overly commercialized golf course and the vast majority of land is restricted for golfers.  I really do miss how it used to be.

How it used to be!  It was originally a private 18 hole country club with tennis courts and a pool.  No dogs and no walking for non-members.  At least you are able to access it now.

I should have been more clear and said how it used to be in the 2000s... those were awesome times.
