Waterfront Park - Review

This large park surrounds the San Diego County Administration Center. It is really family friendly, with lots of picnicking spots, and sprinkler water art and splash pools where kids can enjoy getting thoroughly soaked. Opened with grand fanfare in 2012, the park is really popular with the locals. The playground is huge. And just check out the terrific view of the ocean. There is a large sculpture known as the Guardian of Water statue.

Waterfront Park, San Diego Reviews

  • We spend hours here every time we visit. This is a great park for kids. Great play equipment, security, nice and (usually clean) bathroom facilities and of course the water fountain area where the kids can cool off on a summer day. Not to mention that the fountain area is right next to a lawn so you can even do a little picnic. Little Italy is just a short walk from here, we usually walk there for some great food for lunch after playing.

  • I love this park. Today was our first time going. The only thing I don't like is that you can't play with little water buckets or any type of water toys... I think it's a stupid rule. I had a security guard tell me that me 2 year can't play with a little bucket. I had to take it away and he had a melt down.

  • Great place to spend an afternoon with your kids. There are really huge fountains appropriate for any age to play in. The grassy area is gigantic too so plenty of room to relax in the sun. The playground is a little bit different but it's not so weird that your kids won't play on it. There is one hill on it that my 3 year olds had a hard time climbing safely so watch out for that. The park can get a little busy so parking is a problem but the park is so huge that I can't imagine it's ever full, except maybe on holidays where there's a special event.

  • Went to go to county's building to pay taxes. Otherwise you can get married or pick up other vital important documents there are well. Cool park for kids as well. Parking is not free unless you're lucky. I have never been when an event was being held there. I bet is no parking for you.

  • A wonderful park with lots of family opportunities for children and dogs. Clean, family-oriented. Good toilet room. Wonderful fountains. In summer, it's especially great to spend time here. Children are enthusiastic about the water. I recommend.
