Mission Bay is perfectly flat with a well kept bike/walking path. Perfect for beaches and parks as well as boating. Very nice.

The east side of the bay is a beautifully graded grassy park with picnic tables and walking paths. The west... More

They played in the water for at least an hour, no worries about waves knocking them over ( they are 1 and 3). They had... More

We played the executive course... most holes are about 120 yards - lots of fun. Rented clubs - no drivers since the longest hole is about 250. Birdied the 4th (90 yds).

After performing a quick google search for "Best San Diego Running", Mission Bay Park was mentioned as a top spot. I was looking for a longer run of 10+ miles and this was the perfect choice. You can make it as short or long as you wish. I parked my car at the main entrance, but you can really park... More

Prior to leaving San Diego and heading back to AZ, my husband thought we could all do with a little oasis. Mission Bay Park provided just what we needed prior to our 5 hour drive. It was very picturesque and we strolled along the board walk and other little side streets. I am glad we found this park and we... More
