Waterfront Park, Downtown San Diego ~ My Favorite Public Park Ever

This place is so cool!

This place is so cool!

We found this new park heading to lunch at our favorite restaurant in downtown San Diego (more on that later) one day. It is a fantastic place to kill a couple of hours.

Located just across the street from the Cruise ship port, the Waterfront Park is a modern playground that the kids couldn’t stop playing on.

Right across from the Star of India and other ship tours.

In all my visits to playgrounds all over California (and we’ve been to a lot) this is the best one I’ve ever seen. It has so many different areas to play on and things to play with, the kids were kept busy for hours without feeling bored.

So many cool and unique things to play on.

Though the park is of course free, the parking is not. Don’t bother with the underground parking under the park, it is no longer available for park use, instead head to the parking meters on the ocean side street. You’ll get two hours of parking for about $2.50 in quarters.

Not only does the park have fantastic play structures, but they also have the cleanest public bathrooms I’ve ever seen and a small cafe to grab a snack.

So if you need to keep the kids busy for a couple of hours and want to do it on the cheap, check out the Waterfront Park, they’ll be happy you did.
