This park is located in one of the beautiful bays in San Diego: Mission Bay. It is a nice place for a walk in a cloudy day at the beach. It is nice also to go more down waliking to playa pacifica park and then to tecolote shores north park to finally enter Fiesta Island park which is a true... More

This park has it all. You can kayak, fly kites, swim, play volleyball or picnic. It makes for a great family day.

nice path for a 10 mile walk around the bay. Found water fountains; however absolutely no restaurants for places to take a rest other than the city park

There's alot to do while in Mission Bay Park. There's the old wood roller coaster, which is alot of fun to ride. There's arcade which has alot of video games to play. The best thing is watching others. There's alot of excitement.

It was interesting seeing the mission area of San Diego, seeing the old buildings and visiting all the cute little shops. Some great mexican restaurants to eat at and a great little ice cream shop too.

Mission Bay has stuff and activities for everyone!! Take a walk... ride a bike or skateboard.. play volleyball.. ride jetskiis.. sit and read or just soak in the sun (and look at the beautiful people)! While there's that beach vibe edge, this is totally a kid-friendly place as well. See no evidence of drugs or anything negative!..

Rented a 25 ft sailboat for the afternoon. Service was abysmal. Boat was filthy, as was the facility. For life jackets, they pointed us to an area where they lay scattered on the ground. As we left the dock, we realized the main sail was jammed about 3 feet from the top of the mast and we were unable to... More

We'd gone to the zoo earlier in the day, and it was hot and bizarrely humid that day. Sweated through my shirt, and was just feeling kind of miserable. Went down to Mission Bay, and went for a swim. It was very refreshing, got some of the slime off me, and relaxed for a bit. I love that there is... More

Nice parklands, free parking, the beaches themselves I found to be average. The water is a little murky and my 8yo son didn't really like it. The parklands on the east side of the park are right next to the I-5 so there's lost of traffic nearby which doesn't really make for the most relaxing park environment.

Well Mission Bay Park is the place that my family and I always go to and whenever I go there it's not that crowded and it's just so beautiful for photography and we always have fun there. There is also Paradise Point where you can take a walk at, which is beyond beautiful. But on the 4th of July, wow... More
