Crescent City Beachfront Park - Del Norte County & Crescent City Travel Guide

Crescent City Beachfront Park

Crescent Beach Beachfront Park is a large family park with a beautiful oceanside setting, offering acres of lawns, a playground, picnic tables, swimming pool. It’s a great place to come to and enjoy the beach and the surrounding areas. Beachfront Park is just a short stroll away from the beach. Take in the ocean view as your children play their hearts out. It is a perfect spot in Crescent City to hang out and enjoy the company of friends or family.

This park has a great playground for kids (Kidtown), with lots of things to climb on and slide down, making it a popular spot for locals. It has a community pool (indoor) and public library that is open to the public. Picnic areas provide a wonderful place to gather with the green expanses and adjacent beach on the bay. Skaters, joggers, and walkers will appreciate the sidewalks. Every July 4th there is a big party there with carnival rides, contests, booths, art, food, games, pony rides, etc. It’s always clean; but the weather is what is not dependable as we do get rain at intervals, but we have “;secret” sunny sunny days when everyone comes out even during the winter.

Pleasant, clean and easy to use. This a large flat open space with a few trees. There is plenty of free parking, a wonderful playground, and lots of oceanfront to see while you are enjoying Frisbee or a picnic. The visitor’s center and a lovely indoor pool are at one end, and a small dog park is at the other. The park also is home to the marine mammal rescue center which is worth visiting – and supporting. The park is also right along the Coastal trail, so you can walk a long way north or south, seeing the pier, the jetty, and the beautiful lighthouse. There is also a soccer field. No tennis, baseball, volleyball or music area though as far as I could tell. Clean restrooms and no trash anywhere when I visited. I like it a lot! – LEXINGTON KY GOOGLE REVIEW

This is a gated area designed for kids to have fun. Thanks to Crescent City’s attention to detail and especially dozens of volunteers from the local LDS Church who conduct deep maintenance periodically, this place is a “;must visit” for people who are traveling and need to give their children some wholesome exercise. Development and building of Kidtown was very much a community project. A local doctor was a very first supporter and donor, followed by Del Norte Healthcare District, many local nonprofits, agencies, and Humboldt Area Foundation. Students brough jars of coins. Finally, two brothers dedicated proceeds from their mother’s house and gave $80,000. One weekend the park was constructed as over 400 volunteers converged on the park and began to raise walls, swings and slides.

Crescent City Event Venue
Several local events, such as the Crescent City 4th of July Parade, Festival and Fireworks Show are held at or include Beachfront Park. One of the biggest fireworks show on the north coast is held on July 4 as fireworks are shot off over the beautiful Battery Point Lighthouse for an amazing display. On Labor Day Weekend, the Annual Redwood Coast Grills Gone Wild BBQ cookoff and contest (sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society) is held. Classic auto fans will enjoy the Annual Sea Cruise Car Show the first week of October at the Park.

Location, convenience and pricing - score!!!

My first stay at anchor Beach Inn, and I was very impressed with the rooms, the location, the price and the employees. They have view rooms, but mine wasn’t one of those, so no opinions on that. But the room I had was extra clean and spacious and extremely comfortable after a day on the trails in the Redwoods. Their continental breakfast was better than most and was well attended when I went through – THAT always tells you something. GOLDENDALE, WA TRIPADVISOR GUEST
