  • I really, really liked this park! The design of it is very unique and beautiful. It was also extremely clean, including the bathroom area. There was staff at the park who make sure to keep it clean. I...  more »
  • I went there by myself for a walk and I felt uncomfortable with the amount of homeless men lying around.  more »
  • I accidentally stumbled by Tongva Park as I was leaving the Santa Monica Pier and I was so happy to have experienced this park! I did spot one homeless man sleeping near the entrance, but no one asked...  more »

  • An incredible park! The significant homeless presence was not enough to detract from the appealing hardscaping and landscaping that wowed me. As a recent purveyor to landscapers, I was often able to see finished and nearly finished projects of significant scope in high-end private and commercial settings, as well as large municipal projects that had to satisfy broad audiences and were subject to strict guidelines. None of those projects comes close to achieving what I saw at Tongva Park. Any student of landscaping MUST come here and see what was accomplished.
  • Came for the water park Parked at the civic center which was about of 3 minute walk away. The park has a nice area of shade and Sun. It is a nice area to sit down with your family right next to the water splash park area. The actual slide park and Waterpark are pretty small. But the overall weather and atmosphere with the other kids makes us a pretty fun place. In regards of the homeless situation and haven't noticed that many but they are here.
  • Great water playground, bench area, and very clean bathrooms! Right across from the pier; great location for a full day of fun. Parking tip: if cannot find street parking, park at the Santa Monica court house. Daily max at $5 on wkend only!!
  • I met here a few home;less but presence didn't put me off from enjoying my time here. Landscape is beautifull, park well kept. In the close proximity of the famous pier.
  • We walked through this park on our way to Santa Monica Pier, as there was parking on the other side of it. It was very beautiful, with winding trails separated from each other by gorgeous landscaping, allowing for private walks. The succulents were huge and awesome, really great example of the possibilities for Southern California landscaping. Also has a water play area, and some sculptural observation points with good views of the pier.
