Centennial Park, Coronado, San Diego California

Description

Centennial Park is a sublime park with views across the smooth blue water to the San Diego skyline. There is something pretty everywhere you look, from the historic ferry ticket booth, to the rose garden, to the white gazebo and blue lampposts. Retirees from the nearby apartment buildings enjoy strolls along the wide sidewalk that leads to the water. Another path leads along the water in front of the apartments and is a favorite with joggers. Centennial Park is at the northern end of Orange Ave, the main strip in downtown Coronado.
For a nice walk, stroll south down Orange Ave past the little cafes, bustling Rotary Park and Star Park to Ocean Blvd. Walk east beside the sea to the promenade in front of Hotel del Coronado. After lounging around at Hotel del Coronado for a while, walk amongst the mansions on the little streets around Adella Ave near the harbor. The tropical flowers and handsome architecture will delight you. Take 9th Street back to Orange Ave, stopping to look at the marvelous Christ Episcopal Church.

the downtown skyline is the best thing to focus on while running.
