Information on:

San Diego - Border Field State Park

1500 Monument Rd

Border Field State Park is on the very southwestern corner of the United States and 15 miles south of San Diego. Border Field is located within the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, an important wildlife habitat. The sand dunes and salt marshes give refuge to critically threatened and endangered birds such as the Western Snowy Plover, the California Least Tern, and the Light-footed Clapper Rail.

The park provides restrooms, picnic areas, barbecues, horse corrals, and interpretive displays.  Visitors enjoy beach combing, hiking, horseback riding, and bird watching.  The Park does not recommend swimming or wading, due to hazardous conditions, such as inshore holes, rip currents, and the lack of lifeguard service within the Park.

Quite a touristic place. The trails South to the parking lot are prohibited unless you don't mind a little excitement like me. Border Patrol will stop you all of the time but gently ask you to keep moving because of motorcycle activity and patrolling. The 2 mile walk to the park is a must to enjoy the full experience. Like always when walking trails take some food and water and enjoy your stepping. 👍

Every time I go to the border at the beach. It just makes me think a lot. We share the same sky. Don't we? We are all humans under the same sky. I believe we can all live in peace. No more borders.

Beautiful natural preserve. We went on a guided horseback riding tour right to the water. Views of San Diego and Tijuana are visible from different parts of the trail. Laid back atmosphere! Loved it!!!

Love the binational family reunion they have every month or so from both sides Tijuana and Emperial Beach side.
