This small park is very natural. No playground or restrooms. It does feature benches where you can gaze at the ocean and steps down to a small rocky beach.

Right off, note this is NOT a swimming beach. It is rocky, tides and currents deceptive and treacherous and, because there are often seals and occasional otters, there are sharks. That said, it is one of my favorite places on the Central Coast. The little park is merely pleasant, but sitting and watching sunset, sunrise, surf, birds etc is a great respite, lunch or coffee thermos and breakfast roll experience. Then, one can wander the tide pools - check the local paper or on line for tide schedules - and with patience one can even find a moonstone or two. Be sure to wear shoes with good traction, and try not to step on seaweed as it is SLIPPERY. Ditto crustaceans etc. After a visit, I think you will feel easy and rested, at peace.

We own a small vacation home just steps from this little county park, and we walk our dogs down here DAILY just to watch the sunset, watch for whales, or see if we can spot any otters or seals! There are usually some people that take the steps down to the rocks below to have a look in the tide pools. Just be aware that this is best done during LOW TIDE! When the tide comes in, you can be cut off by water from the stairway! We once saw a family that was stuck on some rocks some distance from the stairs, and wondered how in the world they would get back to the steps without wading or swimming. Bring binoculars to check out the sea life! And be sure to pick up after your dogs! There are often deer to watch that come out to munch on the grass and other plants. They wander all over the neighborhood, especially at dusk, and they are fun to watch. Be on the look out as you drive, because they pop out in front of cars without warning- and that can total your car, not to mention cost a deer his or her life.

Small park, little more than beach access. Bench for watching the waves. Nice sturdy staircase, but leads down onto rocks, which were slippery.

This isn't much or a "park" in the picnic sense. The top part is a big meadow with a couple of benches and a good spot for seasonal whale watching. But descend to the shore (stairs down the "cliff," more of a bluff, maybe 50 vertical feet) and find a wealth of tidepools, waves crashing on rocks in a lovely little cove. There is an ecological reserve adjacent to the south, lush and green - and off limits - where deer and birds re usually seen. There is a ridge to the East covered with Monterrey and other pines, making a scenic backdrop. Love spending time there, looking in tidepools, photographing and just being.
