This is absolutely a must see when in San Diego, to leave the city and never visit this awesome sight is an injustice to your travels.

A large group of us had a brunch here. The trees around us were fantastic, the trunks and branches are twisted. I can't describe them, they just have to be seen, and the view of the sea is fantastic.

This park is very good for lounging around with very scenic views or having a picnic with very scenic views. It could have an excellent rating if it included some type of children's play area. Nevertheless, it is a very good park.

Everything you could ask for. Places to picnic, people watch, hike, see pretty trees, flora and fauna. The views of the ocean and birds are wonderful. The hills are covered in blooming succulents, and the entire park is pretty with lush grass. A great place...More

Great location and plenty of room for picnics. Loved the proximity to the waves. Plenty of area for sun bathers or bbq. Parking will be the challenging aspect of this trip.

This park looks like it belongs in movies. It's beautifully manicured and sticks out on the cove. Awesome place to put down a blanket and enjoy a picnic or read a book.

Definitely should take a walk through this park and along the coast in downtown LaJolla. Alot going on from tourist, surfers, locals to seals and pelicans. Beware...it is really congested and crowded on the weekends, especially. Parking can be tough along the road.
