“Seals and Pelicans abound here.”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The area is kept clean although the restrooms could be better.
I liked the tie die man selling his T shirts and they were good quality.
I didnt like the fact there was nothing to eat there and that the
parking was very difficult.

“Stunning location”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

This park is a fabulous place to enjoy a picnic lunch, being adjacent to a sidewalk that meanders along the sandstone cliffs of La Jolla Cove. Numerous weddings occur at this park and along the greenbelt that meanders southward atop the bluff overlooking the Pacific. The beach is accessible just south of the main part of the park, and a cove just north of the park is favored for snorkeling and kayaking. Parking is free but competitive, and is generally more available south of the park. The park itself is just a two minute walk from popular La Jolla Village, with its impressive array of boutiques, galleries, lodgings, and restaurants. This is a marvelous location to enjoy spectacular sunsets.

“A nice park with good views”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

It is crowded but you have a great view of the Pacific Ocean. A nice place to catch your breath and relax after you are tired walking around the "upscale" La Jolla streets.

“Great park, extremely limited parking”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This park, right on the ocean in La Jolla, is a very popular place for swimmers, beach goers (La Jolla Cove) skin and scuba divers, walkers, and families. Parking is the biggest challenge, regardless of the time of day, and on the weekends, nearly impossible. The road is one-way, so it takes a bit of a drive to come back around to keep looking for parking. Suggest parking in La Jolla village and walking down to the park (perhaps after letting the rest of your party off to stroll).

“Crowded, but nice.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Have lunch at Cody's and walk to the park. This was one of my favorite places in La Jolla. Great pictures of seals.
