At the foot of Colorado Avenue, through the world-famous arch and sign, lies the historic Santa Monica Piermarker, which dates to 1909. The Pier has a National Historic Landmark -– the 1922 Looff Hippodrome Carouselmarker.

Muscle Beach lies immediately south of the volleyball courts and contains athletic apparatus. Recently restored and refurbished, the area features chinning bars at various heights, parallel bars, rings, small jungle gyms for children and a padded-safe gymnastics area.

A few steps south of the Pier volleyball courts is the International Chess Park. The public chess tables — and a human-scale chessboard set into the sidewalk — draw a wide assortment of players.

Palisades Park is located atop Santa Monica’s famed sandstone cliffs and provides an excellent vantage point to see the sweep of Santa Monica Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
