  • Serene, great at sunset time, kinda chilly from Dec to March, stinks but mainly due to the really calm seals and water. It's still somehow a place you'd want to go spend some me-time, go on a date, for a walk, exercising. Right next to this place is a beautiful shopping plaza as well.
  • September 18, 2021, a Saturday afternoon. This is one of my favorite parks - anywhere. It is situated in the apex of the bejeweled crown of the San Diego coastline. There is plenty of room and allowance for most any activity. Or if you prefer - 'inactivity'. Right on the ocean with abundant green grass, shaded areas, picnic tables, benches, a pergola or two, sidewalks and limited beach access. We are regional locals and treasure any visit that we make here. Creature watching of all sorts abounds - land, sea, air. Sometimes, people watching is the most engaging and entertaining. Parking is a challenge, to be sure. Patience in obtaining a space may tax your capacity, but if you keep playing peacefully, the lottery win of spots will open for you in the perfect spot. I promise. Enjoy!
