Palisades Park, Santa Monica Reviews - Write a Review

  • Palisades Park is one of the most beautiful places in Santa Monica. There are panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean just beyond the massive bluff and you won't catch a better sunset in this part of town! This is the ideal place to go for a walk, lay out a blanket and read, play with your dog, practice some yoga or have a picnic. There are park benches if you don't like to sit in the grass. Pro tip: - Pack a blanket or beach towel - Bring some snacks - Arrive about 20 minutes before sunset for world-class views

  • A tad too much homelessness, but it is great aside from that. Stay on the trails though, the grass is kind of dirty (dog poop and homeless beds). The homeless here are generally noninvasive though, so don't worry. :/ Beautiful views of the ocean!

  • Beautiful park for excising or hanging out. Located on a cliff side of Santa Monica over looking the beach. Dog friendly with small walking/jogging trails. There is also beach access to the beach in designated locations, which will a 15-20 minutes walk down. A lot of beautiful trees and scenery. Great location if you are going for a romantic walk before/ after a dinner/movie date. Also a nice location to drink coffee and a place enjoy the scene with family and friends.

  • I only passed thru the park on the way to the Santa Monica pier at night. Although I could see some beautiful lookout areas, it was dark and I couldn't take full advantage. I would caution some that at night, this seems to be a gathering place for the local homeless population, not that it bothers me, I just thought I would let you know. That being said they were very unobtrusive and didn't approach the party I was with and didn't seem to be causing any problems. I can definitely see why they were there, it is a beautiful place with amazing weather and the wonderous sound of the Pacific ocean waves crashing on the beach. I shall endeavor to visit this park during the day and update if I do.

  • It's a Dog Meet Dog world here at Palisades Park. If you're looking for a great spot to run and take in the coast, this is definitely one (of many, but no less lovely). Great spot to bring your pup to socialize a bit. Many friendly dog owners. Have a walk and take in the sunset!
