There are many parks where people sunbathe, but it very much depends on where
you live and whether you are willing to travel by car in a "swinsuit" (sic).
Unless you strut around topless (as opposed to lying down), I don't see why
"mature people and families with kids" should be an issue, assuming you are
neither shy nor embarrassed about your looks.
