Enjoyable view of the bay, while walking, jogging or biking. Be sure to keep an eye out for the ducks. They run around the park, chasing each other and makes for an interesting experience. It is worth the visit.

Clean family friendly... Cold when I went in Febuary, but all the same, it was clean and such an awesome view of the ocean.

This review is about the bike/walking path only, not the park. We rented a place on Mission Bay and the path was right in front of us. It is used very frequently by many people who walk, ride bikes or rollerblade. I believe skateboards are prohibited. We enjoyed many of our walks in different directions. It was summertime and depending... More

We loved our bike ride on the Mission Bay Park bike path. But we had difficulty finding the connections from one path to another and could not complete the circuit. It's flat and paved and beautiful, but the need signs and maps to show visitors how the paths connect and to avoid going on the busy roads.

Great place to ride your bike or go for a walk. Can get crowded on summer weekends, but the rest of the time is fantastic.

Nice view of the beach, nice location to renew your vows. Beware of the locals who are homeless as they might be in your pictures.

We would go out here each morning to go walking. In the morning you can watch exersize classes working out. It is fun to watch the fishermen launch their boats. The banks of Mission Bay are lined with bank fishermen as well. Just a real great place to watch people. If you have kids there are real nice play grounds.

If my view is correct, Mission Bay park is the whole system of park and points around Mission Bay. It includes man beaches and island, jogging and bike path, scenic drives, boat launching ramps and sport facility around Mission Bay starting from Mission Beach City. It is very popular among locals and visitors. Visitors to the Park can just pick... More
