2. Magee Park

Magee Park is a charming 2.1 acre park that is a popular wedding spot due to its close proximity to the ocean. While visiting this park, take a stroll through the scenic rose garden to discover over 125 different roses that represent 15 different rose families. The development of these rose beds earned Carlsbad the honor of being named an “American Rose City” in 2002 by the American Rose Society! Magee Park is also home to the L. John Simons Twin Inns Gazebo, as well as several historic buildings including the Magee House, Heritage Hall, and Granary. Tours of these buildings are available through the Carlsbad Historical Society.
