  • People come here all day long, just to stroll, have their kids play in the water spouts and shallow pools, and/or to sit and talk in the sun or in the shade of the few trees there. Park is totally safe, as there are always police vehicles stationed there as the building on site is a local government office building. Park has great unobstructed views of the San Diego Bay, and all the activities going on around there. Great place to hang out to rest or relax or to let the kids play in the water.
  • My kids call this the "future park". Because they're not used to the playground equipment here. They love it though. When the water is on they like splashing around on hot summer days. They love the view from atop the slides that look out over into the bay. The bathrooms are clean and there's always security patrolling the area keeping everyone safe. There's plenty of space to play and a large grass area where families can picnic or kick, throw a ball around.
  • Nice place to go with small kids. You don't have to worry about expense. Unless you live within walking distance most people use the parking meters. About $2.50 for 2/hrs I believe. They even have a snack booth located on the south side of the building close to the playground.
  • Scenic park right across from the harbor. Beautiful foliage and well maintained lawns which are perfect for having a picnic on a blanket. Saw families doing just that and people playing with their dogs. A cool playground is located here, great for kids. There are fountains and sprinklers in addition to statues, art, and a memorial.
  • I love going to this park with my sons. It had many things for kids to do. There are a few slides, swings, amongst other activities. If it's really warm, there's a water place nearby to cool off. There are historic ships nearby if you want to have a learning day as well
