NOTE: The Waterfront Park fountains are currently shut off for maintenance and leak repair. An investigation has determined that the issue is due to cracking in the drains and in the waterproof materials that line the basin. A repair project has been scheduled and will start in mid-to-late May 2024. Stay tuned for a project update in late summer 2024. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Have a splash! Welcoming residents and visitors alike, Waterfront Park is the most significant waterfront open space in downtown San Diego. 

The historic landscape and landmark County building form the park’s center, while an interactive splash fountain extends from the building and into the park defining a large green lawn area. View fountain safety tips.

The park also features an innovative play area, intimate garden rooms, benches, restrooms and several picnic areas. 

The Park can accommodate special events of many sizes, including concerts, festivals, farmer's markets, birthdays, anniversaries, and active or relaxed family recreation. It’s also an ideal venue for a bayside wedding in downtown San Diego - and often hosts the County's first Summer Movie in the Park each year. Want to hold an event at Waterfront Park? Complete this form and email it to park staff
