“Ordinary Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Nothing outstanding here! OK for families and kids who dont need
a lot of facilities. Parking can be challenging. Not worth a special trip.

“Nice park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Nice park in the center of the island. Public concerts and events during the summer, great change of pace when on vacation to kick back with others and enjoy.

NOT a pet friendly park, signs everywhere. Understandable, who wants to sprawl out on your blanket for concert night and dodge the piles left by the D-bag owners who are not responsible people.

Clean and small park along the main road on the island between the bridge and downtown Coronado. Lots of shade during the day, not lighted well in the evening, but the sidewalks roll up early around here anyway. Very nice small park.

“Upscale Community Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My favorite park in San Diego is on Coronado Island. It is the setting for art shows, concerts, and lazy summer picnic days. The children's playground is exciting, interesting, and safe. Parents actually supervise their own children and join in the fun. The Catholic church across the street offers visitors a place of worship on Saturday at 5 and Sunday for regular services. Always in pristine condition, the park is truly a community treasure.

“Fun park to spend time with family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Spreckles park is great. A lot of grass areas to where you can play with your kids, have a picnic, etc. More than enough opportunity for shade if you are worried about the sun. Great location

“beautiful park for all to enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

An oasis in the center of the Crown City. Art in the Park, Friends of the Library books sales, wonderful free Sunday night concerts in the summer where families bring picnics and folks dance while musicians play in the gazebo. Every day, children enjoy the well maintained play ground while parents visit and church bells ring.
