Stopped here on suggestion of a local resident. Nice place to catch the sunset, take a stroll or play in the water. Del Mar is a nice area in general.

Been here many times and love that they have the benches, with backs on them to sit and look at the view. Nice grassy area, play area, access to the beach, showers, drinking fountains and a huge bathroom/changing room.

If you just want to watch the waves roll in, and don't want the sand between your toes, (or in your shoes, or in your shorts), this is the place to be. Overlooking the beach, great view, plenty of space. Delightful!

Powerhouse is a grassy park that overlooks Del Mar beach. You can bring chairs, food, a frisbee and have a great picnic without dealing with sand! It’s also a nice place to have an outdoor summer meeting and watch the sun set. Parking is challenging...More
