Border Field State Park - Review

There are many reasons this isn't a standard park. For one, much of it overlaps with the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, which is uber rich with wildlife, especially birds. Next, it is the southwestern most point of the contiguous United States. And lastly, that also means it borders Mexico. If you park and keep heading east on foot, eventually you'll reach the beach. Walk south for a little over a mile to see Monument No. 258, also known as Monument Mesa. It is an obelisk, 20 feet high, and it marks the boundary between the two countries.

Border Field State Park, San Diego Reviews

  • This is a beautiful park that is well maintained and preserved. There's plenty to see from views of the ocean, to bird watching, to looking at the greenery and more. This place can also be romantic during the sunset and has no waste laying around in the cracks and crevices. This park is exactly how uninhabited land should look, gorgeous.

  • Amazing when u been in the borders between tow beautiful country's I hope one day there is no boarders between anything and we all live together just for humanity the park not that much the road narrow you pay 5$ only for the parking The parking close at 7 pm the guards there so amazing and helpful anyway you should vist it guys its worthy just to see the borders on the ocean Great and so suspension

  • Very nice and colourful place, calls for love, kindness and tolerance, all in all, Humanity. The opposite of the other side of the border...

  • This is an authentic San Diego adventure. Make the one-mile trek each way to the beach. The border wall is austere and the scenery is peaceful.

  • Sad to see how the powerful wanna build walls and cage people. A big shame.
