Has a great place for kids. Nice area to walk, park benches, it was nice to just sit for a few and let the kids work off some energy.

This is a great little park between main street and 3rd street promenade. Quiet, easy to navigate with strollers or wheelchairs. Public restroom available, small children's playground with small water play area, so bring a change of clothes for the kids. Our family always stopped here for a play whilst walking around the Santa Monica pier or shopping areas. Perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle whilst still been in the centre of things.
This is a beautiful city park near the Santa Monica Pier with interesting fountains, architectural details and a few play areas for kids. It's well-staffed by city employees who maintain the grounds and bathroom areas. Because it's in a high-traffic area, I wouldn't come here by myself, but it's a fun place to come with friends. Pro Tips: - If you're in the area, they have exceptionally clean and well-kept public restrooms! - There's parking in Santa Monica Place, which is about a 5 minute walk
