Have a splash! Welcoming residents and visitors alike, the newly constructed Waterfront Park is the most significant waterfront open space in downtown San Diego.
The existing 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 civic green. Kids enjoy having a splash, while cooling off on warm days. View safety tips.
The park also features intimate garden rooms with distinct themes, a
vibrant children's play zone, and several picnic areas.
The Waterfront Park’s diverse spaces can accommodate public and private special events of various sizes, festivals, farmers markets, and active or relaxed family recreation. It’s also an ideal venue for a bayside wedding in downtown San Diego.
Waterfront Park is a smoke-free and alcohol-free park. Alcohol is
only allowed when appropriate permits are obtained.
