Ir you're not overwhelmed by the gorgeous can to the west, you'll love being outdoors in a fabulous gathering place, summer (for the musical concerts, fall and spring for the slightly changing weather and winter for the early sunsets that defy imagination!!! And Del Mar is such a wonderful little town...

Great views, beach a little rocky and misty. Surfers and surfer watching! Great for picnic. Not a lot of people on a Friday morning.

On the week-ends, parking is busy. Be prepared to walk to get to the park. Beautiful views and perfect picnic spot.

This is a very nice park by the beach and Amtrack track. We walk through the park and to the beach. There are many people hanging out there.

Don't like sand then this is the park for you right off the beach providing a nice vie of the surf and beach and a great place to bring a chair no watch the sunset.

Our grandbabies love this park because they can play on the swings and slides, while watching the Coaster (train) go by! Then they can head down to the beach to splash in the waves! Check out the free concerts here in the summertime!

We were passing through Del Mar and took a break a Powerhouse Park. What a nice place! Nice green grass, well maintained bushes and flowers, and not the least a perfect place to just sit and gaze at the ocean breakers and all the surfers riding the waves. A realy nice place for a picnic!
