Santa Monica: Pallisades Park

Pallisades Park is a real treat: a beautiful, palm-lined greenway with lots of star-gazing and views of the Santa Monica Pier. It’s a pleasant 1.6 miles from end-to-end, and includes 30 varieties of plants and trees, sculptures, cannons, and a unique landmark, and the 19th-century Camera Obscura. A great idea is to do a loop of the park one way and then return along Ocean Front Walk. There are stairs that lead from the park to the beach just south of Inspiration Point.
Note – there are spots where you can run on a firm sand or paved service. Also, it’s lit at night.

 

Essentials
  • 3.2 miles Out and Back. Good add-on options
