Ride the prettiest - and only - carousel in town at Chase Palm Park. This 10-acre park's landscaped grounds stretch along Cabrillo Boulevard across from the ocean and incorporate both an older footprint and a new addition. Trails accommodate bikers and rollerbladers, a skateboarding park is available, and beautifully landscaped open spaces take care of other needs. Picnic areas pepper the space, along with an entertainment pavilion and restrooms. A pleasant plaza also boasts a stately fountain, and a small, beautifully detailed lake invites lovers to be mesmerized for a while. There is also a visitor center nearby. An outdoor art fair is hosted directly across from the park every Sunday.
