  • Fun place to go to relax and have good views. It's an easy walk for a family and in a safe area. Centrally located in La Jolla.  more »
  • Great views, especially at sunset. This park has wide open spaces for kids to run and play. Sea lions (or seals) are pretty cool too.  more »

  • One of the best sunset and ice cream walking spots in La Jolla. For those coming from out of town or state, though parking can be hit or miss, if you come to this park anytime near sunset, know that the views will not disappoint. Also conveniently close to other walkable views and shops!
  • This is a fairly good size park that is kept clean. It sits right next to the ocean allowing for amazing sunset viewing and daytime ambiance. A walk toward the cove often allows for viewing of sea lions and seals which is an added bonus. But beware the smell of ‘nature’ can be a bit off. Great place for kids and family. If you are brave enough, a swim in the cove offers easy close up views of sea life, fish, sea lions/seals and plants. Very cool!! Parking is only down side here. If you can get parking and start to get hungry, there are plenty of nearby places to eat, walking distance. So you don’t have to give up that precious parking spot.
