“Once a star, now it is round”
Review of Star Park

Star Park
Reviewed 30 March 2018

In 1886, the park design was a star with streets radiating from the star's corners. Today, it is round but the lovely homes (including L. Frank Baum's historic house) still surround the park and the streets still radiate. It is memorable for its tribute to the armed forces and is the site of Memorial Day celebrations.

Two war cannons from previous wars are anchored in the park. Dedication plaques give the history of the pieces. It is close to Coronado Beach and just off Orange Avenue (the main business corridor and "downtown" part of Coronado). There is a rock that bears a tribute to Coronado's fallen warriors.

We had a quick history lesson of star park while on our SoCal food tours. Beautiful parks all around Coronado to visit.

Star Park isn't a big park. It is a beautiful place in which to honor and celebrate Memorial Day. The City of Coronado, VFW, local military community, Boy Scouts and other patriotic civic organizations put together a fine celebration that honors our fallen service men and women. Definitely worth attending. Ride a bike since parking is tight.

Asan aside, adjacent to the Park, is the home that L. Frank Baum lived in while he visited Coronado and wrote "The Wizard of Oz." The park is also 1 block from the Hotel Del Coronado and the beach.

Great small park near the beach, park is situated in an intersection with 5 streets heading towards the park. Nice place to relax or picnic. Has small monument/flag with all 5 US services. Located next to the historic home of L. Frank Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz.
