  • The park is lovely. Beautiful flora and fauna everywhere you look, not to mention views of the ocean. The park goes on for miles so it’s great for walking, biking, rollerblades or skates. Ok now the.....  more »
  • We went when it was pretty dead, cold but not freezing and clear skies. I enjoyed the views and found it to be very well-kept! There's lots of things around to see or do as well.  more »
  • Breathtaking sunset views beautiful trees to take a nap under I love Palisades Park good view of the pier. Yes there are bathrooms there however they are the typical Beach bathroom just don't expect them to be spotless or well-stocked. Does filter water bottle Filling Station as well as water filtered water for your dog or cat and usually you'll find some street performers out there to keep you interested sometime some vendors selling interesting things and as well as the food trucks park along their the gourmet food trucks are great so there is lots and lots to do
  • Super cool place to chill, whether it be by yourself, or with a crowd. The views are as beautiful as it gets. Love to ride my bike up and down the paths they got on the beach. They go all the way through Venice going south. Alot of people over here biking, running, rollerskating and enjoying the weather. One of my regular places to go when I visit Santa Monica.
