Fletcher's Cove Park is one of the premier public family areas in Solana Beach, located at 111 South Sierra Avenue across from the corner of South Sierra and Plaza Street. Situated right on the beach, the park was renovated recently to include a grassy area, children's playground, an ocean overlook deck and mosaic art displayed throughout the property.
Both parking and admission to the Holiday Tree Lighting is free. The event is put on by the Solana Beach Parks and Recreation Department and more information can be found at www.ci.solana-beach.ca.us. The Parks and Recreation Department can also be reached at (858)720-2453.
