Named after a renowned San Diego horticulturist and landscape architect, this 139-acre park is located on a hilltop between the communities of La Jolla and Pacific Beach. The high perch leads to some spectacular views. On a clear day, one can see all the way to the hills of Mexico, and even with the marine layer coming in, Mission Bay and Fiesta Island can usually be seen. The manicured portion of the park contains a playground, a large grassy area for picnicking, frisbee, or soccer, and barbecue pits for cookouts.
Directions: From I-5, exit west on Garnet Ave. then turn right (north) onto Lamont St. Shortly after Lamont becomes Soledad Rd., turn right on Park Dr. into the parking lot. Restrooms and water fountains are available.
Hiking length: 1-mile loop. Easy hike that starts near the playground; 50-foot elevation change with some steep areas.
Meet at the playground.
