Beautiful Picadilly Park in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, USA

Carmel-by-the-Sea is a little city. But despite that, there is much to see and appreciate in this Monterey county city in California. It was September 2016 when we drove south to enjoy the 21 Mile Drive in nearby Pacific Grove when we got a glimpse of Carmel-by-the-Sea after our tour. We had lunch at Flaherty's Oyster Bar but had too little time to go around some more.

The one thing that we did stop by was tiny but beautiful Picadilly Park. It was by accident that we found this little beauty of a park when we were looking for a public restroom, one of which was located at the park itself. While the restroom was kinda dirty for tourist standards, I guess that has more to do with users not helping much in maintaining cleanliness. That aside, Picadilly Park is just one beautiful and green spot. Picture-perfect. Poetic. Instagram-worthy. It blends in well with the old-world, rustic charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

According to information posted on the park, a conservation group lobbied for the establishment of the park to maintain a green area in the city. This is surprising since little Carmel-by-the-Sea is nowhere near industrialized. Small businesses and tourism dominate the commerce in the area. And while there is no obvious big industrial threat to the environment in Carmel-by-the-Sea, it is worth applauding efforts like this one.

There's nothing really fancy about the park, a small paved area surrounded by small businesses along Dolores Street. Picadilly park is a garden within a city with trees and flowering plants lining its perimeter. A tree stands proud at the center of the park and wooden benches are provided for park visitors.
