Del Mar is one of the best beach towns in California. Truly beautiful beaches and this park is a wonderful place to take a walk or bring the family. Good for surfing too!

My kids enjoyed playing here after our afternoon at the beach. We also appreciated the faucet to rinse our feet from the sand.

Full of green space, great views, and sunshine. Perfect for a stroll. Paved sidewalk available, making it easy to push someone in a wheelchair (as I did) or stroller. Come for the views!

Beautiful Park in Del Mar California right along the Pacific coast. A must-see, experience, the Cliffs at Powerhouse Park, strolls down to the ocean and Beyond. Take the extra little ride from San Diego to Del Mar as this is a beautiful area to see.

The beach was nice and uncrowded. The ONLY issue I had was because I didn't plan better. There is no place to get any water or snacks to take onto the beach. Get them ahead of time!

We loved Powerhouse Park, what a lovely beach park. Easy to get to, good parking, and so nice. This is a very well maintained area. We brought a picnic lunch, and walked down. The beach was perfect. And the kids loved the play area, too....More
