is located in a grassy expanse that runs parallel to La Jolla Shores
. A popular place to picnic
, you'll have to get there early to stake your claim or be ready to fend off the crowds. The park has two fantastic play structures
- one geared toward the younger set, the other for the older ones. There are swings
, elaborate climbing structures
, a pulley
, and dolphins to ride. Best of all, it's a stone's throw from the water and lies at the edge of the grass and parking lot, making it a perfect transitional spot. A short wall on the east side of the playground is embedded with handmade tiles by local donors. See if you can spot the Cat in the Hat
, donated by Dr. Suess (the late Theodor Geisell of La Jolla).
