Spanish Landing Park
Spanish Landing Park Review
Across from the western end of Harbor Island, on the mainland's Spanish Landing Park, a bronze plaque marks the arrival in 1769 of a party from Spain that headed north from San Diego to conquer California. The group combined the crews of two ships, the San Carlos and the San Antonio, and a contingent that came overland from Baja California. As part of a beautification program, the city has begun installing whimsical, if sometimes monumental, artworks in this park, which is less visited than many city parks and therefore a quiet enclave in which to spend a peaceful hour or two. If you're the hardy type, you can walk from here to the Embarcadero, and then into the heart of downtown.
