Formerly known as the Marina Linear Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade is sprawled across 12 hectares. The linear park, named after Martin Luther King Jr., was opened to the public in 1997. The park is nestled near the San Diego Trolley corridor and Santa Fe Rail, traversing the Gaslamp Quarter and going past the San Diego Convention Center. A pair of pedestrian pathways runs along the tracks in the park.
Peppered with outdoor sculptures, the lush park is an ideal place for art connoisseurs. At the center of the promenade resides a circular reflecting pool, occupying an area of 200 feet. Studded with sprinkler poles and rectangular stone slabs, the shallow pool is the highlight of the park.
