Nice park

Nice park for walking, running or biking. We passed signs for boat ramps as well. There are playgrounds for children and a sandy beach along the water.

There's so much to do in the area, that many tourists miss this. I would say it is more commonly used by locals who know about this gem for picnics and sports. It's less windy and also warmer than the oceanside, so nice on cooler days in winter. It seems to have a nice microclimate.

Went to this park on my last day in San Diego. Fun playgrounds for smaller kids, bike path, waterfront area. The tables were not the cleanest, but the grounds were clean. Seemed like a great place to be during daylight hours. Would be nervous here after dark.

Mission Bay Bark is in walking distance of Mission Beach and has a lot of fun things for the family with great views and picnic amenities. There are also places nearby to rent water recreational equipment, such as kayaks, for fun on the bay!

Get there very early! Plenty of friendly and motivating people along the path. Not too crowed. Seven restrooms and a few Fitness Challenges along the path.
