With ample open space, there is no shortage of state and local parks in and around Paso Robles. Right in the heart of downtown, play on the pristine lawn and enjoy a picnic at the tables located in the five-acre Downtown City Park. Along the coast, discover cultural and natural preserves featuring wildlife and native plant communities. And don’t forget about the annual “super bloom” in Carrizo Plain National Monument. In spring, the park’s thousands of rolling acres are blanketed in wildflowers.

There is plenty of room to roam, so get out and explore!
