Beautiful park right off the Pacific Ocean, filled with ponds, bridges and the huge Banyan trees for shade. Lot of parking lot.

This was an incredible surprise to have this close to our hotel. It was wonderful to walk through or run through every day. Perfect place to sit down and have your morning coffee or to read a book or just meditate.

Grab a lunch and enjoy the views!!! Comfortable place to have breakfast/ lunch. Quiet and open where you can have some 'quiet' time on a random day.

This is so serene and peaceful. Lots of activity later in the day. There are also some resident cats that hang out hunting for birds. Nice paths to run or walk.

Not a good idea as it does not have adequate lighting in the evening and you could turn an ankle as the surface is uneven.
