This San Diego neighborhood is bounded by Mission Bay Park on the west, Bay Ho and Balboa Avenue to the north, Linda Vista to the east, and Tecolote Canyon Park to the east and south.

The community is built on a hillside sloping up from west to east away from the 5 Freeway. This San Diego neighborhood is well thought of and family friendly, yet remains close to the beach.

Fiesta Island, the largest feature within the park, is easily accessible via Sea World drive and is a 24/7 off leash dog area. Additionally, Fiesta Island is a popular cycling and running area, and plays host to the OMBAC Over the Line World Championships each July. Bay Park shares both the 92110 and 92117 zip codes.
