At Kate O. Sessions Memorial Park, you’re sure to see a lot of green. Covering 79 acres, this park offers some of the most breathtaking views of San Diego. The park features more than 60 acres of preserved hiking areas, a large soccer and baseball field, and play equipment for younger children. It’s the perfect way to spend a day outdoors!

Kate O. Sessions Park, named after the local horticulturalist and botanist, is best known for its stunning views. On clear days, park goers can see Downtown San Diego, Mission Bay, Fiesta Island, Coronado Bay Bridge, the Pacific Ocean, and even Tijuana, Mexico. The park’s large, grassy hills roll on endlessly, and with beautiful San Diego as the backdrop, Kate O. Sessions Park is one of the most picturesque places on a warm, sunny day.

Go to the park on the weekends and you’ll see a slew of activities: family barbeques, picnics, hula-hooping, ultimate Frisbee, kite-flying, dogs playing catch, people napping, reading, and even wedding parties.

During the summer, the park hosts concerts right on the grassy hillside and it’s also got the best view of the SeaWorld fireworks show.

A local favorite for many San Diegans, Kate O. Sessions Memorial Park offers amazing views and a plethora of outdoor activities for all ages. What are you waiting for?

Helpful Tip: Because the majority of the park is sloped, if you’re planning on bringing your own picnic table, pack something to wedge underneath the table legs to keep them level.
