This is a really big sand hill! I am guessing 1000 steps in soft sand. It’s a workout for the fit and a challenge for the unfit weekend warriors so be warned. Free to enter. Painful but fun to do. Go and try your best. The trip down is way more fun than the trip up!

Walking up and down Sand Dune park is a work out. People come ritually every morning, afternoon, or evening, for a walk and exercise. Some kids play on the dune, but it mostly exercise. It is STEEP. This year in 2017 the city is trying to limit the number of people at any one time, so busy weekends will actually require a reservation. If you have never hiked a san dune, this is the place to go.

This is a great park with a nice tall fine, but the rules are weird. Our children could go to varying heights due to their ages but we couldn't go up at all even if they got stuck or lost.
Would be better if there wasn't so many weird rules.

Good exercise but in an unfriendly neighborhood. The people there think they own it and they don't want you there...at all!...need reservations a lot of the times, and do not try and park in the neighborhood!..the dune itself is great. A Great workout!!!

In the middle of this beautiful beach town is a 12 Story step hill of Sand that is one of the greatest works you can imagine. Test yourself on the Manhattan Beach Sand Dune. Make sure you make a reservation and bring $1, the cost for one hour to challenge yourself.

The Sand Dune Park has a fenced in area for children to play & climb on different play things like swings, Slides, a push go-around and a few other things to play on. They also have tables & benches to sit on outside of the play area or have a party. There is a person at the dunes to tell you if one can climb the dunes which is a very large hill but usually one has to make a reservation. They also have bathrooms at the park. It's a nice place to sit to read while the children play in the play yard on a sunny day.

I am a local and discovered that working the sand dunes or stairs adjacent to the dunes have improved my workout and made a difference. Challenge yourself. Try it and you'll keep coming back.

I'm one of those who remember the days when the dune was open to everyone. No more. Access to the actual sand dune is very restricted bye the MB Parks dept, and requires paid reservations. The adjacent staircases are free for public access. So ore people are using the stairs for their exercise routine than the actual dune. The staircase closest to the dune has the most steps. The paths that wind up and down at mid-way points provide nice breaks for those that can't or don't chose to do one of the full staircase all at once. The stairs themselves are a great workout. If you visit this area please respect the neighbors and keep your voices at a reasonable level, especially in the early morning hours. The sound travels easily and the locals do not appreciate hearing about your personal life.

This is a great place to workout! I've seen college and professional athletes train here going up and down the Sand Dunes! This hill is no joke! Be prepared for an amazing workout!
