Civita is one of the best family-oriented parks in metropolitan San Diego.

Everybody loves parks. It's true. This newly designed area will make you say "wow" out loud. They have done an amazing job of utilizing a stretch of land in the heart of metropolitan San Diego. The park rolls through 14.3 acres, the designers used its natural hilly landscape to create a multi-level experience that boasts two playground areas for different ages, a garden, multiple seating areas with ample space, a splash pad, bocce court, an open-air amphitheater, an exciting tunnel mural by local artist Kevin Anderson, and so much more.

This park truly has something the entire family will enjoy. Love art? Take a stroll up to the tunnel and admire the breathtaking mural that overlooks San Diego. Do the kids love to get wet? The interactive splash pad with 48 jets will keep them laughing and splashing. Have someone who just wants to enjoy a good book? Head up to the interpretive gardens or one of the "outdoor living rooms."

Civita Park offers free parking lots and clean bathrooms. Pack a lunch and enjoy the day with your family at this city side park, bring your stroller along as well to explore all the grounds have to offer. It will be a beautiful outing!
