  • Beautiful old building... Needs a little exterior maintenance but otherwise really cool. Small FREE museum, you can climb the tower see old pictures of what the valley looked like 100 years ago. Looks like it can be rented for events too. Lots of trails and open spaces to explore as well.
  • Love the serenity you can find here
  • Beautiful Views of San Diego. Also beautiful park. A MUST SEE. Great to picnic here with the family.
  • Smallish but enjoyed the history and being able to walk all the way up into the tower.
  • The museum is only open extremely limited hours, and the history presented has been severely whitewashed to erase the crimes committed against the natives and to glorify slavery and rape they experience as some sick process of "improving their lives". The surrounding park land is wonderful and is great for hiking, but the mission itself is a monument to colonial white supremacy.
