The Beautiful Shoreline Parks of La Jolla

La Jolla Community, News | 20th Jan 2014

The scenic, affluent community of La Jolla grants its residents many gifts. Some of the most lovely things about this area are the La Jolla shoreline parks. With views of the rolling hills and the sea, several of these parks provide recreational activities, a chance to escape into nature, and an overall good time.

Cuvier Park

Prepare to be astounded by breathtaking views of the ocean, cliffs, rocks, and natural greenery at Cuvier Park. It’s situation just across the street from the renowned San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, which means that it’s a great place to plan a whole afternoon. You can enjoy playing in the park, eat a picnic lunch, and spend hours in the vast local museum.

Cuvier Park is so gorgeous that it’s often referred to as the Wedding Bowl because it just so happens to offer the most beautiful place to have a wedding in the greater San Diego area. It’s also simply a lovely place to hang out and savor the natural beauty that La Jolla has to offer. It’s open from 8 in the morning until 8 in the evening. Because it’s a few steps below street level, it’s not instantly in sight from the street, so it can be a bit of an escape as sometimes only locals are there.

You can reach Cuvier Park at 619-235-1169. Although the park itself does not have a designated street address, the closest address to it is  555 Coast Boulevard in La Jolla.

Kellogg Park

Kellogg Park is adjacent to the majestic  La Jolla Shores Beach, and it offers views of the sea that people travel far and wide to see. The long, grassy park attracts people who long to enjoy the sunshine while observing the beach at a distance. It’s spacious with plenty of room for children to run in and play, while it also appeals to adults.

There are several restrooms with showers at Kellogg Park, so you may opt to go enjoy the easily accessible nearby beach, then take a shower and relax at this park. It makes it possible to make a full day at the beach of it. The adjacent boardwalk with lovely palm trees separates the park from the beach, so you may also see many passing pedestrians and people on skateboards.

Bon appetite! You can bring food into the park for a picnic on a blanket, but alcoholic beverages and glass containers aren’t allowed. Kellogg Park is open daily from 4 in the morning until 10 at night.

Kellogg Park is situated between Camino Del Oro and Vallecitos in La Jolla. You can reach it by phone at 619-235-1169.

Ellen Browning Scripps Park

Situation at the bottom of Coast Boulevard, the Ellen Browning Scripps Park is a resplendent, huge tract of park land with palm trees. It’s located between the sea and the exciting area of downtown La Jolla. Enjoy the small cabanas along the side of the park, where you can see incredible views of the tidal pools and ocean below. There’s also a children’s pool that’s adjacent to the park, where you can sometimes see the delightful sight of seal pups enjoying the sun.

You can contact Ellen Browning Scripps at 619-235-1169. It’s open from 4 in the morning until 8 in the evening. You can bring food along for a picnic, but leave glass containers at home.
