San Diego’s 12-acre Waterfront Park located at the County Administration Center downtown offers an opportunity to beat the heat with an 830-foot-long fountain with 31 jets that shoot water 14 feet into the air before it falls in a shallow splash area. Other features include a grassy area for picnicking, lush gardens, and a large playground. Parking is provided in a new underground garage off of Ash Street. Waterfront Park is a prime spot to view summertime firework shows. It also boasts a view of the bayfront.
