is a gorgeous park but not that easy to access. You
need to walk in from either Emma Wood or Surfer's Point.
However, it is worth the
effort. Although 24 acres of undeveloped land at the
mouth of the Ventura River doesn't seem like much, it is
more than most cities have. It is easy to imagine
what this coast must have looked like before
development. This is also a wonderful place to see
birds, sand dunes, and a salt marsh via the two walking
trails. The area is skirted by a paved bike trail.
From the 101 take the "State Beaches" exit and
turn North on Harbor Blvd. Drive until you reach
Figueroa Street. Turn left and then right.
There will be a free parking lot at Surfer's Point and a
paid lot for Seaside Park. There isn't any on-street
