About Pacific Park on Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California

Pacific Park is Santa Monica’s amusement park on the Santa Monica Pier. On a beautiful, sunny Southern California afternoon thousands of people stroll onto the pier to enjoy a sprawling complex of rides, restaurants, shopping carts, artists creating portraits for customers and sometimes even a concert. Santa Monica’s old fashioned pier is old fashioned fun. You don’t need to convince the kids and adults to leave the computers, television sets and video games behind. The primal green, orange, purple, red and blue colors of Pacific Park are brighter than any video game or TV screen to bring you outstanding, real world colors set against the backdrop of the Pacific blue ocean and California sky.

Billed as the only amusement park on an oceanfront pier along the West Coast, it includes a two-acre amusement park that offers rides, midway games and an over-the-ocean food plaza. Opened in 1996, the facility has many parking spaces for those who prefer not to walk. While parking on the pier is charged, entry to the amusement park is free. Each ride or game is charged a fee with an unlimited all-day wristband sold for unlimited use of rides.

From the pier, looking north is Santa Monica State Park North Beach and Will Rogers State Beach. Looking south is Santa Monica State Park South Beach and the Venice Pier in the distance.
