Park Details
This park, with its well-manicured parkland and active community center, is one of the most popular in the City. Among the features available for public enjoyment in the upper park area are baseball and soccer fields, numerous picnic areas with barbecues, playground equipment suitable for toddlers to adolescents, and a well-used 1/4-mile walking path. Most of the privatized recreation classes are offered at this facility and some Peninsula Senior activities are held here.

Additionally, three rooms in the community center are available for rental for meetings and private parties. The lower park area offers a sand volleyball court, picnic areas (no barbecues permitted), leisurely walking paths and locations for enjoying panoramic views of Catalina Island north to Malibu. As at all parks, dogs must be on a leash.
