As the name says, this park is on the shoreline so you are walking along the oceanfront! There are beautiful views and you can stop at the wharf and piers to eat or shop. We rented kayaks from a place on the wharf and kayaked in the ocean for an hour, surrounded by sailboats and sea lions!

Every time I visit something new is happening here. People playing soccer, art walks, picnics, kites, you name it!! Great please to walk your dog or stop and take a break from walking, running, or riding on the beach path that runs by.

It is a wonderful paved walk along the water and a great place to people watch. There a quite a few free parking lots scattered along the drive with great place to look out over the water. It has everything from cliffs with no beach access to stairs down to a sliver of rock beach to areas of sandy beach... More

We caught a glimpse of the last rays of sun of 2016 at this park. Nice easy parking, easy to get to.

Ride our bikes along the shoreline park. Amazing views of the sea and mountains. Stopped at the skateboard park for entertainment.

We parked in one of the free lots, it was mid-week so easy. On weekends I think it gets very busy. Great walking in both the park and surrounding neighborhood. Spectacular views from the park out to the ocean and around. Nice way to spend some time.

We decided to take a little ride to Stearns Wharf. We drove the beach route stopped for a bit. The views are wonderful. You can drive out on the pier which is pretty cool.
