Seascape Park is a six-acre park located along the bluff over Monterey Bay, adjacent to Seascape Resort. The park features a number of benches created by artist Mary Fuller. The benches are carved with images of local wildlife, and make a fine place to sit as you catch awesome views of Monterey Bay. The park also features a picnic area, wheelchair accessible playground, and restrooms. There’s a walking path which leads from the park along the bluff and to the adjacent Seascape Resort, which provides access to the beach below.
Seascape Park holds a footnote in history, as it was here on March 16th, 1905 that John Montgomery first flew in a glider airplane, launched from a hot air balloon at altitudes ranging from 800 to 3000 feet. These were the first high altitude aircraft flights in history.
In December 2016, Seascape Park in Aptos finally received an an updated playground. In addition to the new playground equipment, the County added a new small grass area for playing, new drinking fountains and picnic tables as well as an upgrade to the public art piece.
