GLORIETTA BAY PARK – A little more
than two-acres nestled between the Municipal Pool and Naval Amphibious Base,
is one of the most scenic parks on San Diego's Coronado Island. It is named
for Glorietta Bay with a harbor that hosts many yachts and boats.
The park has a launch ramp where jet
skis, sailboats and other small ocean vehicles can be launched.. Also
at the park are great facilities such as beautiful restrooms, picnic tables,
kids playgrounds and huge grass lawns for children to romp and play.
According to the City of Coronado, the enforced curfew at Glorietta Bay Park
is 11 p.m. to 5: a.m.
For the perfect lunch, pack up a
picnic basket and sit in the shade overlooking the expansive bay and
Coronado Bay Bridge, a huge, sweeping structure that connects San Diego
mainland to Coronado Island. Vacationers love to sit and watch the boats
sail through the bay, gaze at the beautiful San Diego skyline seen from the
park and look at the towering bridge.
Glorietta Bay Park is located on the
inland side of the island with Pacific Ocean directly accessible just a few
blocks away on this narrow stretch of land. Not far from the park you can
see the Hotel del Coronado and downtown shops. There's a public bus that
stops near the park so you can access it easily without a long walk from
most destinations. Glorietta Bay Park is south of Municipal Pool on
Strand Way. It includes a small sandy beach and free parking. And much to
the joy of beach-goers, it has
several bonfire pits.
Like most beaches and parks in
Coronado, the park and adjoining beach facilities are available for groups
of up to 100 people, by permit. Contact the city for more information. www.coronado.ca.us

leisure activities that include an 18 hole golf course,19 tennis courts,
public marina, 15 miles of bike and rollerblading paths and two theaters.
