The Locke-paddon Park sprawling over 17 acres of pristine wetlands and woodlands is a birders’ paradise with over 138 bird species including both native and migratory birds. The highlight of Locke-paddon Park is the complex of six freshwater seasonal ponds which are home to the ducks, mallards, swans, cormorants and gulls. A number of walking and hiking trails with interpretative signage are here, including the Monterey Bay Coastal Train leading southwards of Pebble Beach. Walking through the wooded trails will offer you prize sightings of blackbirds, sparrows, and warblers. The park also caters the fitness freaks with the workout stations where you can exercise.

Locke-paddon Park Reviews & Ratings
Sure it has some beautiful aspects to it. The walking path is nice and connects with the library playground. However my kids felt uncomfortable with the number of homeless camped on the grounds and the parking lot seems very sketchy at times (especially as the day advances)
Awesome park with lots of wildlife. As a bonus a beautiful library with a playground and a summer reading program is attached. My family was blessed to have been there the day the library has a special show by the bubble guy🤙😊
Not sure what to make of this park. Perhaps they are letting it go natural. Starts on a hill with the Marina Library at the Crest. At the bottom is a large pond. It is as if the city doesn't have the money to take care of this park. Lot of yellow weeds that out grow the grass and the grass doesn't seem to be watered. Pieces of the sprinkler system are laying around. Tree and reeds growth cover the pond's edges so it is almost impossible to see. Viewing platforms are in a dangerous state. Trails are not in the best of shape. Bathrooms are ok. Homeless pass through the area but, have always left me alone. Could be really nice park with funding and TLC.
Great place to walk and enjoy the scenery w/ nature of the local habitat. The sounds of nature are of abundance for sound therapy. And there is the local read center called the Monterey County free library of the Monterey Peninsula at the top of the hill. Location Seaside court in 93933.
A nice place to go for a small walk and enjoy the view of the Lake. Close to a library with playground!
