The Children's Pool with the famous seals of La Jolla is a short walk and a just a few hundred yards more is the La Jolla Cove where a large park, sea lions, and other marine life abound.

There is also a recreation center within a five minute walk that has basketball courts, a large playground, and lighted tennis courts.
