  • Great place to unwind and go for a walk, have a picnic, or enjoy a cup of Joe while strolling through the park. In the warmer months, there are Personal Trainers training clients in the sun (maybe you could take a class with one of them & work on your tan while working out?). Such a beautiful space and very thankful for the City of Santa Monica & the State of CA maintaining these grounds. This is a great place to catch a Sunset as well; watching the Sunset against the foothills while over looking the water is astounding!
  • Palisades Park is situared on a lovely bluff overlooking the Santa Monica Bay. On any given day your senses will be treated to spectacular views of deep blue Pacific Ocean with yachts and sailboats dotting the bay. Meanwhile you'll enjoy the pier & amusement rides & the beach below. If you remain on the bluff/park you can take a walk or jog & picnic too. There are plenty of shady trees & palms & grassy lawns to relax with your loved ones There's ample parking on Ocean Ave & bathrooms too. Enjoy
