great to spend time with family. Play in the water, camp in the RV or just have a pick nick and watch the stars. If you have a boat or water craft you can play on the water. Great local spot.

One of my favorite places to go. I actually lived here many years ago and even though it has grown, it is still as pretty as always.

What a fun place. Sights are beautiful, water is calm, and there are lots of things for kids to do as well. Things got a little crowded on Saturday afternoon, but it was still a really nice visit! Beware that parking fills up and people don't keep it between the lines, though. Check out the parallel street parking for more... More

I had several hours to kill prior to checking into my hotel and needed somewhere to do a long run. I ran around the entire park, which is a little over 10 miles and quite flat. There are some parts of the park that are very new, but the entire park is very well maintained. The side closest to I-5... More

This was the first time I had been to Mission Bay and was very pleased with the walkway, and the beach access and all the shops nearby. There were facilities available and free parking! We had a wonderful time walking around, and going to the beach, This may be my new favorite place to visit!

Parking is free and plentiful but use caution when leaving, the park... More

People park sideways, put their items in open spots to save for people who aren't there. They have parking lots, but you can park right near the... More
