Palisades Park

Location Map

This lush, 26-acre park overlooking the Pacific is a wonderful place for walkers, bikers and people watchers, and connects with the broad Santa Monica beach made famous in TV's "Baywatch" episodes.

Palisades Park was given to the city in 1892 for use as a park "forever" by Santa Monica's founders, Col. Robert Baker and his partner, Senator John P. Jones. From this slender, 26-acre park set on a cliff and running from Colorado Avenue to just north of San Vicente Boulevard, you'll be treated to breathtaking views of the Bay, which stretches before you from Palos Verdes Peninsula to Malibu. Whether you're coming to rest and enjoy its lawn and palms, or to jog along its paths, Palisades Park is a great place above it all. There is also a Visitors Center located here for information on the area.
