Tours, travels, hikes and journeys!

The 4th was my birthday and I’d thought of going to check out this park that evening but had a headache most of the day. So I headed over on the 5th, just in time for the sunset.

This park is named after Kate Sessions, in 1957, to celebrate her 100th birthday.  She is famous in San Diego due to all the work she did with Balboa Park.  She is responsible for much of the plantings there and bringing plants in from other countries. She was a teacher, a botanist, a horticulturist, and a landscape architect.

The park has play structures, picnic tables, BBQ pits, parking, bathrooms, and beautiful views that include views of Mission Bay, the Coronado Bay Bridge and even the hills of Tijuana, MX.

The park is 79 acres, some is landscaped and manicured and there is a large amount of land that is left to natural habitat, with hiking trails.

Here is the map on how to get there:
