Sun Vista Park



Sun Vista Park is popular for its updated, covered playground, lots of green grass and the fact that as far east as it is, it’s often warm and sunny on those days that the coast is socked in with clouds. Bring a picnic and enjoy the shaded gazebo area. Also, the park offers off-leash dog hours on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday 6am – 9am and 3pm - 8pm (east side of park only). Please obey all posted rules and stay out of the creek area. There are no restrooms at the park.
