Residents of University City love to walk the loop walking path around a large field at Nobel Athletic Area. It's fun in the evening to join them. There is a good vibe here.

There is also a large playground area for kids, with a sand digger, play house, monkey bars, several play structures with climbies, and gazebos with cement picnic tables. 
Exercise stations are situated along the loop walk.
The walking path circle is about 800m long. You can extend it by walking the other loop path to the north, by the basketball court. Or have a pleasant walk down Toscana Dr, Toscana Way, and Renaissance Ave, past tidy four-storey apartment complexes. University City is a bit sterile looking, but attractive, and there are many educated people that are interesting to talk to.
Another lovely walk is to follow Shoreline Drive to the beautiful entrance fountain on the corner of Shoreline Drive and Renaissance Ave. Behind the fountain is a pedestrian path that leads to Renaissance Towne Center, with its pond and romantic clock tower, which looks especially pretty at night. Have a delicious boba yakult (yogurt) tea at Arteazan.
Drive to the ocean to see the waves at Scripps Pier. It is 13 minutes away.
