This is a nice out the way park, it is very clean, since it is off the beaten path, it remains uncrowded. It is a very nice place to walk, nice views of the downtown skyline and the boats going by. Probably your best bet...More

This is a nice place to stroll along the waterway and look at the boats and skyline. We were there at sunset to watch the sun sink over Point Loma. The light was brilliantly reflected in the building across the harbor. The park is easy...More

This outs a small and quiet place to relax or enjoy watching the boats go by. There are a lot of similar places around the bay, but this is one of the best because it's not touristy and therefore relatively private.

I attended a day event at this park. Great place for a day time stroll or simply taking in San Diego. It's a stones throw from the airport, Gas Lamp & other places of interest

This place is a great place to have a family picnic at the park or on the beach so you have sand and grass and it's really not that crowded. Also has a great View

Marks an historical landmark, the 1769 meeting of Gaspar DePortola and Father Junipero Serra expeditions. Located at the west basin along North Harbor Drive, it offers a long narrow grassy spread, shade trees, a playground, sandy beach and views of the marina, hotels and boats.

Of course the kumayaayay native Americans inhabited this beautiful spot for centuries before the Europeans had ever heard of the New World. But Spanish Landing is special to both San Diegans and Californians. Located across from San Diego Airport (Lindbergh Field) and looking outward toward...More

We like to go here after dropping people off at the airport, which is right across the way. It is free, and easy to get to and leave. It is right next to the water and Marina and there are restrooms. Currently they are building...More
