Enjoy Nature and Art in the Park in Pismo Beach

It's that time of year again! Art in the Park at Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach begins in May and runs through November. Held the first Sunday of every month, this Pismo Beach tradition is anything but prehistoric.

Art in All Its Forms

The seventh season of Art in the Park is a gathering of the finest Pismo Beach offerings of art, music, and children's activities, making it a more than worthwhile outing for the whole family. Over 100 artists and craftspeople will display their wares to be admired, coveted, and purchased.

Art in the Park is craftsmanship at its finest. Paintings, sculpture, pottery, glass art, textiles, jewelry, wood, and metal furniture are just some of the categories of amazing work that guests will encounter. The colors and atmosphere join to form a visual feast of creativity. From vases to clothing, wind chimes to woven baskets, you can't help but be inspired by the likes of these fine artisans and their work.

Make Friends with the Dinosaurs

Dinosaur Caves Playground

When it's time to really stretch your legs and embrace the great wide open, explore Dinosaur Caves itself, an 11-acre oceanfront bluff top park. Bring the family pet, walk a while, jog off the sweets you indulged in (Art in the Park is also known for its delish BBQ and pastries), or break out the fishing tackle for a leisurely cast over the Pacific Ocean.

Dinosaur Cavesis popular with photographers, professional and amateur. Those three teal, speckled, life-sized dinosaur eggs are irresistible to young people and adults alike and crouching there is just the spot to snap a one-of-a-kind picture.

If you can manage to pull yourself away from the eggs, the large play area also includes two concrete dolphins, Oreo the Orca Whale, the USS Imagination sailboat, a dinosaur, seals, a tire swing, and tot swing. That means plenty of diversions to go between and expend some energy.

Put On Your Walking Shoes

Dinosaur Caves is only a short one-mile walk from the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo Beach. You won't have to worry about driving and parking and you can treat yourself all you like because you'll be getting in some wonderful exercise on your jaunt to and from Art in the Park. End your art-filled Sunday by relaxing on the rooftop terrace of the SeaCrest, or taking a leisurely walk down to the beach to daydream about your own newest endeavors - artistic, or otherwise.
