Great park for a relaxing visit, especially while visiting the many sites surrounding the coastline here. Beautiful Large trees in varied formations leave plenty of shade to enjoy. Perfect spots for a few minutes rest or other leisure activities.

A super little park right next to the ocean side. Clean and well looked after. Lots of atmosphere in this place as it is next to the beautiful La Valencia Hotel and next to the best spot to see the sea lions.

This is a nice, family-friendly park that is central to a lot of other sites at La Jolla Cove like the tide pools and caves. Parking is on the strert and fills up fast, so I would go early!

This park is located along the paseo in La Jolla, you cannot miss it if you follow the paseo. There is nothing to see in the park, but the fact that it is located directly at the paseo makes it perfect for a little rest.

The best part about the park in the location. It's right on the water. There are a decent number of people. It's pretty clean. And you are right by the seals.
