Kate Sessions Park provides 180 degree views of downtown, Mission Bay, Point Loma, and the beaches. The views are almost as good as Mt. Soledad (further up the hill), but the park has much more open space and is less crowded. The entire park is situated on a grassy slope so, while it is a great place to picnic, you probably want to leave the tents and tables at home and stick to just a blanket. It is dog-friendly and many people let their dogs play off leash, but I hear the leash rule is being enforced more strictly now.

Kate Sessions is up on a hill overseeing the back side of La Jolla. Beautiful place to kick back and have a picnic, play ball games with the kids, or enjoy rolling down a hill. Everyone seems to find something to do.

We came across this park by coincidence. I was looking at a map of San Diego and noticed a huge park in the middle of a residential area. We couldn't believe the beautiful views. You can see Mission bay, the downtown skyline, Coronado and the bridge leading to it, the Sea World tower and Ocean Beach. I'm sure on a non-overcast day, you can see even more. The park is on a hill and progresses up the hill with trails and grassy areas. There's also a play area for kids.

Kate Session has some of the best views in San Diego, along with decent hiking, and large fields on which to really get some exercise.

This is one of the most scenic parks of San Diego that is located away from the beachfront, on top of a hill. Getting there can be a little tricky but not an issue with google maps / navigation.

The park has a lot of shady trees near the parking lot - so it is ideal for bbq in the summer.

Some dog owners let their pets run loose on this park - the only negative thing about this place.

Read the story of this woman who was responsible for the layout of the parks & gardens in the early years. Her simple statue & tools of trade at her feet pay tribute to this remarkable woman.
This park area pays tribute to those with a vision for San Diego.

I love this park. We took a friend's dog here and the view was incredible. Cute dogs with a city and water views. I wish I lived closer. I'd go here all the time!

We visited the upper and wilder part of the park to enjoy the view and to find some geocaches. Lots of interesting wildflowers and shrubs for someone who is not from California. Sadly everyone seems to ignore the "dogs on leash only" signs, and we got barked and growled at by two dogs that were running around out of sight of their owner, which was a bit scary. A few more benches would be nice.

The Park was relaxing with great views of San Diego and when it’s clear you can see Mexico. We went here in the morning and it was very peaceful and plenty of room for a child to run around. There probably will be some dogs here but none were a problem. Would definitely go here ago just to soak in the views.

I just came from Kate Sessions Park. What a beautiful, calm and peaceful spot in San Diego! I met a group of friends there for a picnic lunch. It is a warm, humid day; but the park catches the refreshing breezes off the Pacific Ocean and there are nice, shady spots among the trees. The park overlooks Mission Bay and has the most gorgeous views imaginable. It is a very dog-friendly park. There are signs posted that inform you that dogs must be leashed, and one of my friends said the fine for breaking the rule is upwards of $400! That being said, there were more dogs offleash than leashed, all well behaved and friendly, as were their owners! We stayed and stayed. So nice!
