If the weather is nice, why not spend some time outside here with your family. If the weather isn't being nice and is raining, then come inside and use the gym. They have different events throughout the week/weekend here. A nice venue available to all in the Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista area.

It's a very well maintained park, with a community center, a gym and large parking lot. There are tennis and basketball courts, baseball field and picknic tables which can be reserved. They are very popular for any kinds of celebrations. In the summer, there are free rock or jazz concerts on Fridays.

Nicely maintained park where we play tennis frequently, however with summer time it gets difficult to get a court during the week due to classes and private lessons. The playground area is great for kids and this is a safe neighborhood so parents can chill and read a book while their kids run around. The tennis courts are well lit... More

My wife and I came here to play tennis and were pleasantly surprised by how well kept up and quiet it was. Quiet for a tennis court that is. It is surrounded by a baseball field and a playground so expect other people to be doing activities around you.

Unfortunately I got there when it was super foggy otherwise I would have rated this place as excellent. I missed the view, but you can tell about the incredible and efficient maintenance work they do all to keep this park pretty! After all I managed to have a great time!

You can hike for a couple of hours or more in this open space. It leads up to a 360 degree view, which is lovely. Dog friendly. There are signs that your dog has to be on leash but the locals say otherwise. Use your judgement and let your dog be a dog if he/she is well behaved.
