Easily one of the more popular parks in town, this park has plenty of open stretches of grass, trees and playground facilities for the children.

It is very common to see a soccer game or two going on a warm summer evening.  The view from this park is quite nice and it's isolated location draws many families from the surrounding neighborhoods.

There are no grilling, tables or restroom facilities, so any picnic (and you will see plenty of them) is a 'bring your own and pull up a piece of grass' affair. 



Directions:  From the 101 take the Bailard Avenue exit and turn away from the ocean. Drive until the road ends. The park is on the right.
