  • Was there with my daughter's family, including a 4 & a 6 year old. The park is in a beautiful site, but only has one tire swing & swings for toddlers, no slides, etc. The kids ended up playing more wi...  more »

  • We love this park and visit every time we are in Pismo area. There was a strange smell in this area and we couldn't really understand why?  more »

  • We stopped at this playground during a road trip. Our 4yo twins had so much fun that they spent the next two days asking to come back! The dinosaur eggs kids can climb in were a big hit. It's also right by the ocean, and there are gorgeous views. The landscaping is lovely as well.
  • Beautiful and well kept park with an incredible view. A wide variety of flowers and other plants crowd the whole park and it is a sight to see when they are in bloom. However, beware: blooming flowers = lots of bees. Great place for a lunch date. Lots of open space and benches for sitting.
  • Overlooking the Ocean, really cool play structures for the kids, even "Dinosaurs Eggs" for them to play & pretend to be hiding from a T-Rex. While parents can play it relax watching the ocean, birds and the beauty of Shell Beach. Had a little path to wander around. With tons of Beautiful Flowers!
  • Awesome park to visit. Beautiful views all around. The cliffs edges are outstanding and once you figure how to get down to the coastal cove under the cliff you will be amazed
  • We have been there a few times. My kids (1-5 yrs) love it. Whenever we are in Pismo they will ask to go there. We take a picnic and relax.
