The existing historic landscape and landmark County building form the park’s center while a new interactive fountain extends from the building and into the park defining a large civic green. The park also features intimate garden rooms with distinct themes, a children's play zone, and several picnic areas, making this a perfect venue for a bayside wedding in downtown San Diego.

The Waterfront Park’s diverse spaces can accommodate public and private special events of various sizes.
