Tongva Park reviews
Lots of happy whistling from homeless bums. Butt no annoying jehovahs witlesses chasing us around. With both types, we took care of them by yanking out our trusty peckers and peeing on their shoes... more »
Small park well laid out with interesting walk, water features, restrooms and children's play area with slides and climbing frames but no swings. It would help if the plants could have been named in..... more »
This is a great little park between main street and 3rd street promenade. Quiet, easy to navigate with strollers or wheelchairs. Public restroom available, small children's playground with small water play area, so bring a change of clothes for the kids. Our family always stopped here for a play whilst walking around the Santa Monica pier or shopping areas. Perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle whilst still been in the centre of things.
This is a beautiful city park near the Santa Monica Pier with interesting fountains, architectural details and a few play areas for kids. It's well-staffed by city employees who maintain the grounds and bathroom areas. Because it's in a high-traffic area, I wouldn't come here by myself, but it's a fun place to come with friends. Pro Tips: - If you're in the area, they have exceptionally clean and well-kept public restrooms! - There's parking in Santa Monica Place, which is about a 5 minute walk
