For a small area, it contains a real variety of environments and activities. There is a protected coast area in which children were playing and swimming, rock outcroppings on which some people were walking, cypress trees, and more. My favorite thing was the sea views...More

Great spot for rock climbing, tide pools, little beach. Most of the crowds from Monterey stop here. You can go further to Asilomar or any of the spots along the coast for more serene experience.

The park has a trail that runs parallel to the ocean. The views are fantastic. You can see sea lions on the rocks.

My son and I were here July 4th. The park was crowded, but in a good way. Lots of extended families having cookouts and children. Very pleasant atmosphere!

You have the beach area on one side of the park, but the recreational walkway continues on the other side with lots of benches for resting and seal watching!

Yes, it can get a bit touristy and crowded. I'd park in downtown Pacific Grove and walk a few blocks so you can get in and out quickly. But it's easy to see why people fall in love with Lover's Point!

Best park in Pacific Grove. It's free. Many people come here for the day. There's a grass area, tables, and a bbq, a few statues, and restaurants nearby. The view of the ocean is spectacular. There's direct beach access and large rocks to climb on...More

I do not believe the pool is heated. It is pretty new as they had a campaign to completely re-do it a few years ago. Now it is more of a smaller kids pool than a pool for adults. Has a ramp going down to enter the water.
