From Ellen Browning Scripps Park, you can make your way to various beaches, including La Jolla Cove, at the east end of the park, and Children’s Pool, just west of the park.
Scripps Park is also a very popular spot for weddings. Permits are issued year round, with a maximum number of 80, September through May, and 50 during the summer months of June through August.
