The workout: Climb a 100-foot-tall sand dune hill, alongside locals of all ages from bodybuilders to children having fun in the sand, for a truly unique workout. Walk or jog up the warm sand to the top of the hill for vast views and killer calves.
The scene: When approaching the sand dune—located across a playground—it looks like a mirage that appears out of nowhere in the middle of a neighborhood park that has its typical swings, slide and grassy fields. Post-work happy hour is prime time here when locals hitting the sand. On weekends, expect more of a family-friendly atmosphere.
How's the parking?: From either side, the park is located at the end of different residential streets filled with empty parking spots. Just be ready to get some sand in your car, post-workout.
Bonus: Sand too hot to walk on? The park has an adjacent stair climb to the dune—a steep one, similar to the Santa Monica Stairs, except with a lot more greenery.
