This is a beautiful park. Close-cropped grass and Dr. Seuss-style trees! It overlooks the ocean. If you're adventurous, you can climb down the beach. On the North side of the park is La Jolla cove, where you can swim, snorkel, and kayak. This place is a gem. But be prepared to pay a lot or spend a lot of time looking for parking. 10 years ago, you could usually find a place to park, but now it's very difficult to find parking. Oh, and a bonus, if you're lucky you may see sea lions on the rocks or sharks in the water!

Such a great place to unwind, with the blue Pacific crashing up on the rocks, the sea lions barking below, dolphins swimming by, and the 78-degree sunshine beaming down. Get your camera ready for some breathtaking views.

We come to this park every year. It's like my home away from home. The scenery and the views are unbelievable and breath taking. I can't say enough about this park.. Great walking distance to restaurants, shops, and hotels. Come early for a good parking spot cuz they fill up quick.

Not very large, this park along the ocean front has elegant trees, beautiful views, and the La Jolla Duplicate Bridge Clubhouse! If you enjoy bridge, this would be a lovely place to drop in for a game. Games at noon on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.

Enjoy the ocean breeze, the view, the seals, while walking (running, jogging) or sitting on one of the many benches.
