  • I love this location. It seems to be the hub of so many local events. It is in the middle of a nice park. There are public restrooms and it is centrally located. The Mission Church is there as well as a gift shop where you can buy locally made things as well as commercial items. and now the COWS. Love this place. Peaceful and enjoyable for any occasion.
  • This mission plaza encompasses a block long area in front of the San Luis Obispo Mission. There are events most weekend and often during the week. The fountain, pergola, and amphitheater are always pleasant. The walk by the creek is connected to the plaza and goes for several block. A wonderful people watching location, surrounded by restaurants, shops and museums. The San Luis History Center, The San Luis Art Museum, and The San Luis Mission all are touching this beautiful well maintain mini park. Often it is a gathering place for transients, however they seem to keep to themselves.
  • This is one of my favorite places in downtown! I have a lot memory there! I did YOSAKOI dance with my friends at the friendship night when I was a student!
  • Concerts in the Plaza in the summer are a great local experience. Free music, spendy beer, fun times.
  • This is a beautiful place to come and relax or take a stroll along the creek.
