Spend the Day at San Dieguito County Park

San Dieguito Park in Del Mar

At this County Park, you’ll feel as though you’re much further away from the city than you truly are.

Located on the border of Del Mar and Solana Beach and just minutes from the highway, San Dieguito County Park is a beautiful place to spend the day in North County.

With two entrances and hiking trails that lead you in different directions, there really is something for everyone within this 125-acre park. Parking is just $3 per car, but you’ll need single dollar bills for the machine. You can also park outside the park entrance and walk in.

  • Address: 1628 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Del Mar, CA 92014
