Great views and it's free

Great view of the city, Coronado bridge, the harbor and ocean. Not crowded and it's free. There is parking or you can park on the street and walk.

This park has beautiful ocean views from most arras of the park, it's breathtaking. The playground is in a flat area with limited views and the rest is a little steep

Love to come here to enjoy the view and picnic, have the kids run around, or let the dogs loose. Playground equipment, restrooms, plenty of parking.

Beautiful park with fabulous views of San Diego and the harbor. There is no fee for this park and there are public restrooms and ample parking. If biking here, it is a relatively steep climb into the park from the city. We know of at least one geocache site in the park if you enjoy that. Great place to spend... More

This is a lovely park to see the skyline view of downtown San Diego. We have had several parties here for our Grandson, and often enjoy picnics with him here as well. There are 2 age appropriate play areas and equipment. Always fun.

79 acres offers some of the best locations for picnics, kite-flying, family BBQ, ultimate Frisbee and other outdoor activities. From here you can see Mission Bay, Coronado Bay Bridge and even the hills of Tijuana, Mexico in the distance, but not Alaska. Alcohol has been banned since 2010 making this a family friendly area.

I came here with my wife and dog Daisy. We had a great time, everyone was wonderful who was there with there dog. The only trouble was a couple owners letting their dogs play a little too rough but it was quickly broken up. It has nice bathroom facilities for a public park. Lots of people coming in there cars...

So Kate Sessions was one of the first woman to get her degree in agriculture. She ended up in San Diego and started planting trees. She became a historical figure for bringing so many varieties of trees to San Diego. Kate Sessions park is absolutely breath taking. Easy to find, just head North up Lamont Street in Pacific Beach about... More

Kate Sessions Park provides 180 degree views of downtown, Mission Bay, Point Loma, and the beaches. The views are almost as good as Mt. Soledad (further up the hill), but the park has much more open space and is less crowded. The entire park is situated on a grassy slope so, while it is a great place to picnic, you... More
