How to Get There
Belmont Park is located in the Mission Beach district of San Diego. Free parking is available in four nearby lots; if those are full, a free shuttle connects you to the park entrance from the East Bonita Cove and Ventura parking lots. Ride sharing is another great option for getting there.
When to Get There
The park is open daily, with extended late-night hours on Sundays. Check the calendar for special events around holidays; highlights include the Beachside Fall Fest in October and Winter Wonder in December, which features festive light displays and Santa photos. The Beach House, the Draft, and other restaurants at the park offer happy hours, live music sessions, football parties, and other ongoing events.
Take the Plunge
Belmont Park is also the site of one of Southern California's largest indoor pools, the Plunge at Fit Mission Beach. The heated indoor pool sits beneath a retractable roof and features floor-to-ceiling windows with ocean views. There are also water polo cages, lap swim lanes, and an inflatable obstacle course. The Plunge offers day passes, monthly memberships, swim lessons, and group classes.
