Visit Kate Sessions Park

Kate Sessions is one of the best places to enjoy the stunning views of Mission Bay, the Pacific Ocean, and the surrounding cities. The park gets its name from Kate Sessions, a highly influential horticulturist. She was San Diego's head botanist, dubbed the "Mother of Balboa Park," responsible for planting exotic plants throughout the area that are now common in local gardens and streets. 

On top of Mount Soledad is this 79-acre park borders Pacific Beach and La Jolla, which forms a gentle grassy slope. This area is perfect for picnicking, relaxing, playing frisbee, and enjoying the views and sun set on the Pacific Ocean. The park is dog friendly and includes barbecues, restrooms, picnic tables, a hiking trail, drinking fountains, a 0.75-mile walking path, and a playground. It's one of the best places to view the SeaWorld fireworks during the 4th of July. 

When staying at the Comfort Inn Gaslamp Convention Center hotel, you're staying in the heart of downtown San Diego, surrounded by seemingly endless entertainment options. Get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax at the Kate Sessions park with your friends and family. Book your room directly on our website or call (619) 202-4324 today!
