Centennial Park, Coronado
||San Diego, CA|
Print Leave a comment
Centennial Park is a sublime park with views across the smooth blue water to the San Diego skyline. There is something pretty everywhere you look, from the historic ferry ticket booth, to the rose garden, to the white gazebo and blue lampposts. Retirees from the nearby apartment buildings enjoy strolls along the wide sidewalk that leads to the water. Another path leads along the water in front of the apartments and is a favorite with joggers. Centennial Park is at the northern end of Orange Ave, the main strip in downtown Coronado.
For a nice walk, stroll south down Orange Ave past the little cafes, bustling Rotary Park and Star Park to Ocean Blvd. Walk east beside the sea to the promenade in front of the white sand of "The Del," Hotel del Coronado. After lounging around at Hotel del Coronado for a while, walk amongst the mansions on the little streets around Adella Ave near the harbor. The tropical flowers and handsome architecture will delight you. Take 9th Street back to Orange Ave, stopping to look at the marvelous Christ Episcopal Church.

From Highway 5, follow the signs to the San Diego- Coronado Bridge or
Highway 75. Once you've passed over the bridge, turn right on
Orange Ave and park along the road. You will need quarters for the meters. Parking is free on Sundays. Once you've parked you can walk to Centennial Park, which has no parking of its own and no restrooms.
Or you can take the ferry to Coronado Island and walk from Ferry Landing to Centennial Park.
