Martin Luther King, Jr. Promenade Description

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Promenade connects a number of sites along San Diego's waterfront. The walkway runs on the northern side of an active railroad corridor parallel to the Linear Park, which occupies the southern side of the tracks.

Begin your journey at Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball. At 5th Avenue, trail users can take a detour into the Gaslamp Quarter, home to a number of charming restaurants, shops and bars dominated by Victorian architecture.

The entire route is lined by palm trees and open space for picnicking, relaxing or letting the kids use up unspent energy. After passing two skyscrapers, the Promenade continues into popular Children's Park, marked by a large water feature. The trail ends at busy W. Market Street.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Promenade can be found on city streets in the Gaslamp Quarter or in the large parking lots surrounding Petco Park.
