Warm weather it's perfect to walk, jog, ride bikes, bonfire or do water activities on. You can catch pretty sunsets for romantic evenings here. Lots of families and pets are welcomed. You get a good feel of Southern California here. You can launch boats and jetski's too. There's a visitor center and restrooms.

We stayed in San Diego for one week and were fortunate enough to be camping at an RV Resort right in Mission Bay. The path is cement and very wide allowing bikes, walkers and joggers to all use the walkway with ease. It goes on for miles with benches along the way for breaks if needed. We mostly used the...

This is a beautiful park of bays and lagoons, boating, swimming, biking, hiking, and concerted loafing. And it's one block from the ocean, as well.

We spent most of our day here walking about and enjoying the beautiful boardwalks, palms tress, beaches. I'd also recommend hiring a bike to enjoy all the Park has to offer.

Enjoyable view of the bay, while walking, jogging or biking. Be sure to keep an eye out for the ducks. They run around the park, chasing each other and makes for an interesting experience. It is worth the visit.

Clean family friendly... Cold when I went in Febuary, but all the same, it was clean and such an awesome view of the ocean.

This review is about the bike/walking path only, not the park. We rented a place on Mission Bay and the path was right in front of us. It is used very frequently by many people who walk, ride bikes or rollerblade. I believe skateboards are prohibited. We enjoyed many of our walks in different directions. It was summertime and depending... More

We loved our bike ride on the Mission Bay Park bike path. But we had difficulty finding the connections from one path to another and could not complete the circuit. It's flat and paved and beautiful, but the need signs and maps to show visitors how the paths connect and to avoid going on the busy roads.

Great place to ride your bike or go for a walk. Can get crowded on summer weekends, but the rest of the time is fantastic.

Nice view of the beach, nice location to renew your vows. Beware of the locals who are homeless as they might be in your pictures.
