“Very good for scenic views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This park is very good for lounging around with very scenic views or having a picnic with very scenic views. It could have an excellent rating if it included some type of children's play area. Nevertheless, it is a very good park.

“GORGEOUS.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Everything you could ask for. Places to picnic, people watch, hike, see pretty trees, flora and fauna. The views of the ocean and birds are wonderful. The hills are covered in blooming succulents, and the entire park is pretty with lush grass. A great place to take a rest after shopping, visiting cafes and eating yummy food.

“Beautiful Way to Relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Great for free out door concerts in the summer. Close to the seals at Children's beach and La Jolla Cove! Plenty of bars and eats nearby!

“Amazing Views of Sea Life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Our hotel staff told us about this freebie -- seeing the seals playing in the water and sunning on the rocks was incredible! Plenty of on-street parking and a beautiful view of the sunset from the park, as well as the entertainment of watching the snorkelers and kayakers among the seals. This is a must-see just a few blocks from the shops and restaurants of Prospect Street.

“Great day at the Cove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Great location and plenty of room for picnics. Loved the proximity to the waves. Plenty of area for sun bathers or bbq. Parking will be the challenging aspect of this trip.
