Palisades Park is a bluff-top park extending approximately 1.5 mi along Ocean Avenue, north west from the Santa Monica Pier. It offers great views of the beach, the pier and, on clear days, of the coast to Malibu and Catalina Island. There are picnic tables and benches, and (soft) paths for walkers and joggers. Restrooms are located near the foot of San Vicente and Idaho, as well as in the Senior Center Building between Broadway and Colorado. Stairs/paths to Pacific Coast Highway and the beach are located near Montana, Washington, California, Arizona and Broadway. See also entry for Visitor Information Kiosk.
