Developed in 1964, the park acquired its name from the 100-foot high sand dune located there. Two hundred steps switchback up the dune, and there is also a natural trail that winds through indigenous plant life and provides an interesting and educational nature walk. The three-acre park also includes a fenced small children's play area with swings, merry-go-round, and climbing equipment. The park has shaded picnic facilities, an open pavilion, and picnic tables. Restrooms and drinking fountains are also available.
