Pico Park in San Clemente

Pico Park in San Clemente

Pico Park in San Clemente is right below the Outlets at San Clemente. It’s a compact little park with some challenging climbers, a basketball court, picnic area and restrooms right nearby.

But the best part is that it’s a gateway to the “nature” nearby because you and your kids can access the Sea Summit Trail from the back of the park. It’s a great outdoor space for family exploring.

How to Get to Pico Park in San Clemente: Exit I-405 at Avenida Pico and head towards the beach. Right before Pacific Coast Highway, turn right into the parking lot. (Address: 315 Avenida Pico, San Clemente)  MAP TO PICO PARK IN SAN CLEMENTE
