Beautiful! Very clean

We took our family there and the kids enjoyed it. Very clean, lots of families walking around, beautiful views, and the sunset was the perfect ending to a perfect day.

Mission Bay is a great place to do just about every outdoor activity. It truly captures the essence of San Diego. You can bike, roller blade, picnic, play volleyball and other sports, or even fly a kite. You can also go swimming, jet skiing or boating.

We stayed in a hotel close to Sea World but we wanted to look around the area at other things. We were close to Mission Bay Park so we decided to take a cab and try it out. It was a lot of fun! The beach was beautiful - there was a great walkway and lots of little shops to... More

We took our 3 young children here. It was free which is always a big plus. It had grassy areas, a playground and, of course, the bay. Our bay is more like a beach, so I would consider this more of a picnic, play area than a beachy area where you'd bring sand toys and such. If we had watercraft,... More

Mission bay park is one of the reasons we live in San Diego. You can enjoy a romantic walk with your love. A Run or Bike ride, or just sit and watch the people go by. One of many free attractions here. This place is a true treasure. IDEA: Brag a small BBQ from Wal Mart, some Caria Asada from... More

Used to go almost every weekend to fly kite with my boy. Beautiful views of the bay, to see the ships, and to get amazing pictures

We rented the City Bikes and rode for about an hour. The terrain is easy and visually interesting. There were hundreds of people enjoying the park, flying kites, enjoying water activities, and biking. So much fun!

We visited Mission Bay on Fathers Day and enjoyed a bike ride around the bay. We stopped to watch some kite surfers in the bay, fantastic! As we rode along we saw families having picnics, swimming, walking dogs and playing. We also saw a person in a pink bunny costume riding a bike, although I can't explain why! It is... More
