Cuvier Mini Park

Cuvier Park, also called The Wedding Bowl, is a small park located at Coast Boulevard and Cuvier Street in La Jolla. It is located directly across the street from the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art. The park site is about five steps below street level so it is hard to see from the street. It is the most popular spot for weddings along the La Jolla coastline.

Take state Route 52 west to La Jolla Parkway, and continue as the street becomes Torrey Pines Road. Turn right on to Prospect Street and then right on to Cuvier Street. Street parking only.

Note: Site is permitted for weddings but not for receptions. Only one permit per day is issued for this site. Permits issued for wedding ceremonies are allotted up to four hours, including the set up and breakdown.
