Have you ever wanted to find the parks near you with sand? Or wanted to know which parks have swings or climbing structures? Or even if there is a playground with shade for especially hot San Diego days? This information is surprisingly difficult to find! But, I’ve spent hours and hours researching parks in San Diego to create this database so that now you can! Simply click on the feature above and you’ll be connected to our parks database. From there, you can refine your search further by selecting a location or other features you’d like. 

As a general rule, I didn’t categorize a park has having a feature unless I was sure… this means that there could be more parks with changing tables in the restrooms, but I didn’t mark them as such because I haven’t yet visited them myself. 

Of course, parks in San Diego are always changing so please don’t rely solely on the information here. Also, feel free to let me know if something has changed so I can update the park in our database!
