Like Los Amigos Park, this one is all about the sports, but it's also friendly to kids who just want to play around. Marine Park features light-equipped fields for baseball and soccer, courts for tennis, basketball and handball, and a huge playground to boot. This place is also more amenable to birthdays than most of the other 26 parks in Santa Monica. In addition to picnic tables and barbecues, there's also a pavilion specifically intended for birthday shindigs. For parents, Marine Park's biggest appeal could be its free parking lots, which features a whopping 64 spaces.
