Mission Bay Park - Review

This isn't a regular park. It's the largest aquatic park in the country, visited by over 15 million people annually. It has 19 beaches, 14 miles of bike paths, and covers an area of about 4500 acres, half of which is water. There is practically no outside activity impossible here - jog, cycle, skateboard, golf, rollerskate, play basketball, barbeque, bonfire and camp (kids only) on land; wakeboard, jet-ski, sail, paddleboard, row, fish, and sunbathe on the water. The park is also home to various endangered species of birds, and birders love it.

 Highlights Include:

  • Crown Point for basketball.
  • Ski Beach for family parties.
  • Sail Bay for runners.
  • Quivera Basin-fishing and scuba diving.
  • Mariner's Point-catch sight of the California least tern.
  • Perez Cove-catch site of the great blue heron.
  • Tecolote Creek-lots of birds, especially many species of ducks.

This treasure trove of leisure is the result of three decades of hard work during which the park was slowly converted from a marsh into a wetland.

Mission Bay Park, San Diego Reviews

  • Awesome beach... We brought our dog here (@raventherotttie) and the people were super nice. (Except that homeless lady asking for spare change) Closes at 10 but it's an awesome place to wind down relax and enjoy the nice 360 views from left to right. Going to come here at sunrise and edit this review

  • A great place to walk by the ocean. We went over by the harbor and saw some jellyfish. It was very nice. They also have a nice walkway that allows you to walk for a couple of Miles next to the ocean. If you have the time take it and go for a long walk. Also look at the trees, the trees are incredible. There are also several opportunities for you to look down and see the sea lions come on shore.

  • Excellent place to sleep, try parking out by the beaches there over night if you need a place to be safe but also unbothered. My girl and I stayed out there parked for about 2 months straight. Million dollar real estate, watching the sun set on the mouth of the bay every night, except made so much better costing us $0.00 in rent. We called it the "Car Apartments", and I may have to say that those were the best two months of my life

  • Extremely fun there are many stores and restaurants along the beach. The beach is very packed with people. There is a fun park next yo the beach with games, activities, and arcades. It is a great experience for both kids and adults definitely recommend!

  • This park in Mission Bay is located at the south end of Quivira Way in 2500 block. It is large grassy park surrounded by rip rap. No groups allowed in the "traffic circle." There are views of Mission Bay, the San Diego River and out towards the ocean. There are picnic tables, a picnic shelter, fire rings, and a path for jogging or bike riding. Up to two inflatables are allowed. Note: Be sure to arrive very early on summer weekends as the parking lots tend to fill up quickly.
