If you want to see California Grey whales or Pilot whales or some people have seen Orca whales...this is the place. Bring your binoculars and have a nice picnic on the lawns there. On a clear day you can see forever~

Sprawling playground our three kiddos loved. Only regret is we went right before sunset and didn't stay as long. The playground only having two gates makes it easier to keep track of the young kiddos!

This park is quite large and full of play equipment for a variety of ages. I have taken my kids here numerous times and we always have a great time!

Bought McD's at ate under the "teepees" at Park. Boys (7 & 5) loved playing on equipment. Also, Area was clean and birds weren't hovering over you while you ate.

Clean fun park to stop and play at. Nearby are chalk drawings and the marine mammal rehab center, the baby harbor seals are adorable.

A huge park with many playground equipment. We don't have kids any more but it looked fun. Walked here because we couldn't access the waterfront walk. Wish we have a park like that near home.

Couldn't find another place to review this. This center is on the edge of the park. We went just before 8pm to catch the feeding. It was interesting and informative. It takes longer than you think it would. They are doing good work there. Interesting for the whole family.

We went with the grandkids within Ten minutes of school getting out. Almost on top of the beach are picnic tables and fire rings. The waves are very gentle and shallow on this part of the beach so safe for little ones. It's a nice place for a last minute picnic. It's a tough place to live I know
