This area is San Diego's front lawn.
Fitness boot camp, Yoga groups, volley ball, soccer, this is the place the locals go to play and hang out on the weekend. There is an off leash dog park south of El Prado, guys lay in the sun south of Quince Street, multiple playgrounds, and the San Diego Lawn Bowling club playing in their whites most weekends, and nice views of downtown as you walk or drive across the bridge.
Food markets, restaurants and coffee shops over on 5th Avenue. Unless there is an event, (and it seems like there is a charity run every weekend) parking is easy.
