Tijuana River Valley Regional Park offers more than 1,800 acres of diverse habitats to enhance visitors' experiences—from dense riparian forests along the Tijuana River to coastal maritime sage scrub on top of Spooner's Mesa.

Experience the extensive system of trails that link the many habitats in this fertile river valley. You can hike and horseback ride along miles of trails, or bring your binoculars to see birds in one of the best bird watching spots in the county.

Horse trails connect the Equestrian Staging Area to the Pacific Ocean. Parking is due west from the Visitor Center at 2310 Hollister Street. Pullouts for trailers, corrals, and picnic tables are all available to help you stage your ride.

See birds and butterflies traveling the Pacific Flyway in the new Bird and Butterfly Garden, also west of the Visitor Center. Walking paths meander around plants specially chosen to attract these beautiful winged creatures. Check off your bird list while you enjoy lunch at one of the picnic tables in the park.

Another popular feature of the park is the Community Garden at Hollister and Sunset, which provides area residents a place to exercise their green thumbs.

Game on! Tijuana River Valley Park is home to one of the county's newest sports facilities, featuring five ball fields and a multi-use open turf area.

The Tijuana River Valley Regional Park is home to two dozen sensitive species, and more than 340 bird species have been spotted—more than two-thirds of the total species seen in the entire county! Even more natural riches can be found adjacent to the park, in the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve and Border Field State Park.
