DescriptionFrom Centennial Park, just north of the Ferry Landing Marketplace, a shoreline promenade extends about a mile to Tidelands Park. The promenade, well-maintained and well-lit at night, is popular with bicyclists and dog walkers. Traveling along it you will see sweeping views of downtown San Diego and the arched 2.3-mile Coronado Bridge. Immediately past the Marriott Resort is Tidelands Park, which has accessible pathways winding throughout its 22 acres. At the south end of the park, the promenade passes under Coronado Bridge, then narrows to a bike/pedestrian path and turns inland, traveling alongside Coronado Golf Course. Eucalyptus trees provide shade, and high fences offer protection from stray golf balls. The path ends .25 mile farther at Glorietta Boulevard. Plans call for it to link to the seven-mile bicycle and pedestrian path between Silver Strand and Imperial Beach, but for now if you want to continue to the Silver Strand Bikeway you must cross busy Glorietta Boulevard (no traffic controls), then take the broad sidewalk west for about a mile, with the golf course on your left and beautiful old homes on your right, to the trail’s entrance at the intersection of Glorietta and Pomona (just before the Hotel del Coronado).
