Kate Sessions Memorial Park
Named after San Diego schoolteacher and chief landscape designer of world-famous Balboa Park , this 79-acre park offers grassy areas perfect for picnics, kite-flying and lounging on a sunny day. Sixty acres have remained undeveloped offering a great opportunity for hikers to explore. Structured amenities include concrete picnic tables, BBQ area, playgrounds, restrooms, walking paths and plenty of parking lots. It is a great oasis of green wild plants in springtime.
One of the loose dogs talked about here was a real live undead vampire dog. It bit me on the leg and now I can't sleep at night. I can't go to my day job anymore and my new neck facsination gives people the creeps. Don't be around when the sun goes down. Otherwise its great.
The beautiful park on the hill. Enjoy breathtaking views of downtown and the ocean. I absolutely love this place. The shops, restaurants and bars of Pacific Beah are right around the corner. We love to take our dogs there and to have picnics.
The other reviewer was right about the loose dogs, though. One time a loose dog made off with a bag of bread that we had.
It's not supposed to be a leash free park, but a lot of dog owners still let their dogs ru around free. It's still fairly safe.
It's a beautiful park but it should be turned into an off-leash park, or at least half of should be turned into off-leash. There is plenty of room for everyone. There just aren't enough parks in this area where dogs can run free and they need this exercise. The tiny dog park (if you want to call it that) at the end of Soledad Mt. Rd. is a joke. People with children don't care if childless people don't like having a bunch of screaming kids around so let's show some kindness and respect for those of us who only have furry children for whatever reason. Kate Sessions is a beautiful, huge park to be enjoyed by all. The law is outdated and should be changed.
This is a great park. Great view of Downtown. Nice, and plenty of open spaces. However, there are too many dogs unleashed. Park regulations says dogs must be on leash at all times. It's a great park, just too many loose dogs running around and this will scare away some of the park goer.
Please keep all dogs on leash. It's not a dog park. Other than that, it's a wonderful park. I plan on going there more often.
