Seaside Wilderness Park
off Figueroa St.
This is a gorgeous park but not that easy to access. You need to walk in from either Emma Wood or Surfer's Point. However, it is worth the effort.
Although 24 acres of undeveloped land at the mouth of the Ventura River doesn't seem like much, it is more than most cities have. It is easy to imagine what this coast must have looked like before development. This is also a wonderful place to see birds, sand dunes, and a salt marsh via the two walking trails. The area is skirted by a paved bike trail.
Dogs welcome on leash.
Help us keep this area beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
