Let’s Visit Santa Monica’s Beach Parks

Sep 07, 2009 by Lisa Newton

Recently, I took you on a short tour of Crescent Bay Park in Santa Monica, but it’s just one of four parks that border the Santa Monica Promenade. You can reach the others below by walking or by bike.

Beach Park is a fantastic park for kids:

With its toddler friendly playground, many families camp out, bring their lunches, lawn games, and small tents for a full fledged day outside.

Croquet anyone?

If you forget your kid’s bikes, you can always rent a few:

Hey Mom, can we ride our bikes?

Further down the Boardwalk, is Ocean View Park, where you can enjoy a tennis match on one of its six tennis courts.

The last park on today’s tour of Santa Monica’s Beach Parks is the South Beach Park. One of the main features of the South Beach Park is both its easy entrance to the beach and bike path accessibility.

By adding these three parks to Travelin’ Local’s previous Santa Monica Walk, you’ll have increased the total amount of your walk for all four parks to a total of almost 4 miles.

Don’t forget:

Santa Monica Pier 100th Anniversary

On Wednesday, September 9th, the Santa Monica Pier will be celebrating its 100 Anniversary, so be sure to attend for a fun evening celebration which will include the biggest fireworks display in almost two decades.

Because you’re Travelin’ Local for a centennial commemoration, always remember to celebrate with moderation.
