Ellen Browning Scripps Park
Named for newspaper heiress and early La Jolla resident Ellen Browning Scripps, this community park offers one of the best views along the Southern California coastline. The park overlooks La Jolla Cove where clear Pacific waters crash against the rocky shoreline. Countless tourists and locals flock to this park for daytime picnics on the perfectly manicured lawns surrounded by palm trees. The grounds are also ideal for evening strolls while watching glorious sunsets. For those seeking a glimpse of the local seal population Children's Pool Beach is located at the south end of the park.
it's the perfect place to fly kites, there arent many people (unless there's an event), a few trees, best place for a game of catch. good place for picnics
but nothing for small kids
(ex. no playground)
Not much for young kids, though. Our 5 year old needs to get out of the car every now and then and play, and this park had nothing for him. The Children's Pool is down the street and he was interested to see the seals, but again, no place to play.
The clean air races in from the Pacific. The walk is clear. The waves are powerful. People from all over the world enjoy this coast.
The Children's Pool is now occupied by seals. No children are allowed. It is a pity. It was not the intention of Ellen to build this pool for seals or sea lions. It was buildt for children. Fortunately my children enjoyed this beach almost thirty years ago. They buildt lovely sand castles! They explored the tide pools with delight. I celebrate the movement to reclaim this space for children.
