When in Pismo Beach, I like to stop by this little park for a great view of the rocks and coastline. It fun to watch the pelicans. A peaceful place. Usually a lot of friendly people from the neighborhood walking their dogs. A beautiful view.

Had we come at low tide it would've been amazing! As it was we enjoyed the stairs down to tide pool beach, caves and rocks full of pelicans and other sea birds. Such great photos from here. You won't be disappointed.

I have been to two weddings there and it is an outstanding place for a wedding as long as the weatherman cooperates.

Cute little park with stunning views of the ocean! We hung out at the gazebo for quite a while just taking in the sites. Beautiful place!

What a fantastic little Park. It goes along the edge of cliffs and a little further down you can take stairs down to the bottom by the beach. It was simply beautiful for evening and morning photo shoots. Peaceful, clean, absolutely lovely!....and free.
