Ellen Browning Scripps Park is often called the most photographed park in San Diego, and once you arrive, you’ll understand why. Blue ocean, green grass and towering palm trees set the scene.
Along with plenty of space to run and play games like Frisbee, there’s also a walkway along the bluff overlooking the ocean. Low tide at Shell Beach, located at the south end of Ellen Browning Scripps Park, is a great tide pooling spot. Keep an eye out for seals and sea lions snoozing on the rocks offshore.
The park is a popular wedding site and a number of events take place there including the popular family friendly outdoor Summer Concerts by the Sea, held Sundays throughout summer.
Ellen Browning Scripps Park is located at the bottom of Coast Boulevard, between downtown La Jolla and the Pacific Ocean. There is a picnic area complete with tables, barbecues and restrooms. Dogs are allowed, but must be on leash.
