Neighborhood: Newport Coast/Corona Del Mar

Bayside Drive Park is a pleasant surprise to those who spend time exploring Corona del Mar. This green island along Bayside Drive is found in an area once known as Pacific Gulch. With no parking, visitors need to be creative on routing in order to see it. The easiest way: drive on the scenic Bayside Drive from Newport Bay. The locals' favorite way is to bike along the line of million-dollar homes on Goldenrod Avenue. Right above the gulch, the two sections of Goldenrod Avenue are connected by the historic Goldenrod Footbridge. Built in 1928 for $10,884, the bridge was meant to provide easy access to the beach. Today, the 243-feet flower-adorned bridge symbolizes the quaint beauty of Corona del Mar. – Hoiyin Ip
