Maggie park is a good location for a rendezvous with friends before heading to the beach or going to the village. There are public restrooms and parking in the area.

Nice scenic little park in Carlsbad. Great setting for a wedding we attended, or just to visit and relax on the grounds. Good for kids or adults and convenient to other local attractions and eateries.
