Veterans Memorial Park, Monterey California

Description

Veterans Memorial Park is a slice of heaven! Here you can have a blissful picnic. It's so peaceful and quiet amongst the tall, tall trees. It has the feel of a national park. A huge sloping lawn of bright green grass embedded with tiny white daisies leads down to a playground. Distant views of mountain ranges add to the expansive feel. It's sunny and warm here when the rest of Monterey will chill you to the bone. Being up high on a hill is always a nice feeling, and I envy the lucky folks who live up here!
For a colorful playground you'll never forget, check out famous Dennis the Menace Park.
You can take a long walk past Victorian homes from Veteran's Memorial Park all the way to downtown Monterey, with its hip main strip, great history museums and little Spanish arcades.
