“Good Entertainment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

A good place to people watch, street entertainment, there are quite a few homeless people hanging about, didn't get any bother from them, and lots of fast food hot dog vans.

“Lovely views, great for a walk, lots going on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is the classic California bluff-side promenade. Palm lined, breezy, great views of the beach and pier. Lots going on, walkers, people working out, people playing music, picnicking, playing with their kids, on and on. Loved it!

“A place to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Palisades Park, the 14-block stretch north of the Santa Monica Pier has so much more than strollers, dog-walkers, joggers, etc. It has a lot of historical landmarks right in the park. The Bench across from the Fairmont Miramar Hotel is where the owner, Mr. Jones would sit and enjoy the sunsets in the early 1900's. The Memorial to all the different branches of the military has a shadow on 11-11 at 11 am that showcases each obelisk, who knew? Then the canyons closer to the pier are the original ones used during WWI & II. There is the statue of Saint Monica, which the city was named after, which came from the Spanish explorer Cabrillo. The Camera Obscurer, which one of 5 that exist in the US. And so much more to discover and enjoy. Go check it out.

“Perfect for a stroll with stunning views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

There's never a bad time to visit this park. Set above the coastline, your eyes will thank you for choosing this place for a stroll. You'll see many joggers, walkers, friendly dogs around here. Best times are morning or near sunset. You can also see the Santa Monica Pier below which is a nice little treat in my opinion. The plants, palms, and small points of interest make this place great. Look for metered parking but this can sometimes be a challenge depending on time of day.
