a lot of weddings happen here! The ambiance and views are stunning...you can see the dunes, Pismo Pier and bird rock! During the 'season' (usually April through November...) they have Art in the Park (the first Sunday of the month!) There are picnic tables for your picnic...plenty of places locally to get your lunch!

Stunning views from the gazebo area. Hike down to the beach (easy steps) during low tide to spy the seagulls catching crabs and watch the sea lions sunbathe. Climb through the cave formations. Nice park for little kiddos near the gazebo.

This is a gorgeous location for a wedding or vow renewal. Lovely spot overlooking the water. Gorgeous sunsets and the ambiance of the sea. Romantic and spiritual.

We were there during a rainy period but it was still quite breathtaking. Sea otters were below us within easy view, and the walk is quite delightful.

Used the park for a wedding on Jan 7. Rained all day but they have a nice gazebo for the nuptials. Beautiful views. Not really big enough for anything else.

The location on the map was a little off. The park is more north but worth the short walk from dinosaur cave park

Greta place to relax and soak in sun with the beautiful ocean waves crashing the cliffs. Good place to fly drones and watch dogs play.

I went to check out the little Gazebo at the edge of the cliff that I spied from our hotel. I was not disappointed. Beautiful views, hidden away behind the Dinosaur Caves Park.

Just a few miles north on Highway 1 from Pismo Beach is this beautiful little picnic area. The views are stunning. Not much more than a little picnic area, but there are stairs leading down to a small beach area where during low tide you can get to the big rocks
