This family-friendly park is attached to the beach area and is walking distance from the hotel we stayed at, Bahia Resort Hotel. It is also adjacent to Sea World & Belmont Park. We noticed several families hanging out w/a fire and enjoying a BBQ together. It's a neat park.

Great place to take a long stroll. Plenty of benches, water stops, and restrooms throughout the park. Paths are wide. Park is very well maintained with plenty of parking. Doesn't fell overly crowded even on weekends. A few boaters and water skiers on the bay. Definitely worth a visit if you want to get in a nice walk. Freeway noise... More

Spent a long weekend at the bay front Hilton and enjoyed much that the park has to offer. Started each day with a long walk thru the bay front park which is clean, safe, family friendly and lined with miles of paved walking and biking trails. Friday featured college cross country races. The park is so expansive that the event... More

This was a great place to walk and chill. We walked around after asking a surfer where to eat around the area. It's a well kept place, lots of folks on roller-skates.

Mission Bay Park was right on the way to our resort. It was nice seeing so many people using this space. There is parking as well as playgrounds. And of course there are beautiful up-close views of Mission Bay! There is also a volley ball net at one edge of the park.

Really quiet and tranquil park. Haven't spent a lot of time there, even though I have stayed at a hotel in the area several times. There are many people who do enjoy this park and there are a lot of bike riders in the area.

Play in the bay, lie in the sun, roller blade, walk, ride a bike, fly a kite, launch your boat. All with no cost. Or do nothing at all. A simply gorgeous park set along Mission Bay. Lots of grass, shade trees, and fresh air. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day. Get outside!

What a great place to spend the day with your family. Playing, walking, riding, skating, picnicking, just about anything you would like to do. You could even get caught in an organized game of soccer.

Just a great place to sit and relax while watching the yachts, boats, and seagulls come into the bay.
