  • This park has stunning views! I was so impressed with how clean and well maintained it was. And I was so excited to see a Great Egret hunting in a garden a couple feet from the sidewalk. At first I th...  read more »

  • Lovely park to walk with ocean views, most enjoyable in the late afternoon and early evening, wonderful sunsets. 
  • Nice beach with lots of volleyball courts and 2 bar/restaurants in the back near the parking. If you don't go down to the beach to park, you can find parking on top of the cliff. But signs directing pedestrians to the pathway down the cliff would be nice, because if you can find it you have to walk around. Santa Monica pier is right next door as well and over there you have a mini carnival type setting that's poppin every day/night (especially during the summer). The only downside is the beach ocean front has a lot of rocks.
  • My wife and I absolutely love coming out here to hang out and relax. Set up some chairs and enjoy the environment, ocean breeze flows through nicely and there's people out and about walking their dogs and what not. Definitely a great place to hang out and spend an afternoon.
  • This long stretch of a park is unique because it offers panoramic views including highway infrastructure, cliffs, beaches, Santa Monica pier, oceanfront properties, and the ocean... all in a single eye shot. Pretty cool. Of course, there is also a winding pathway to enjoy a good walk and plenty of shady green to relax or picnic.
  • Lovely park overlooking the ocean with places to park for beach access - just hike down the stairs and across the bridge to get to the beach. Would be a nice place to study or eat a picnic to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA.
  • My friends and I, under the name Under the Sky, play there every Saturday from 3 pm to 5 pm. There are a bunch of family friendly crowd there to enjoy the great scenery and music!
