Map view of Jasmine View Park in Corona del Mar California

Jasmine View Park is a small community park located in Corona del Mar in the city of Newport Beach, California. 

The official Jasmine View Park consists of a lawn, pathway, and landscaped garden at the corner of Harbor View Drive and Marguerite Avenue. However, this scenic park also connects to a wide trail that winds its way down through the valley to Grant Howald Park to the south. 

Jasmine View Park overlooks the older portion of Corona del Mar, with ocean views in the distance.

The park is also close to a number of other features including Harbor View Elementary School and the recreation facilities of Grant Howald Community Center. 

The trail leading from Jasmine View Park is well lit with lamps at night, allowing for walks after dark, and the numerous trees and valley-like setting make it a peaceful getaway in this vibrant community. 

Grant Howald Park & Community Center

Grant Howald Park & Community Center is located at 3000 Fifth Avenue in Corona del Mar. However, the parking and main entrance are most conveniently accessible from Iris Avenue.

Grant Howald Park covers 3.1 acres and is one of the most popular parks in Newport Beach.  

The park was established in 1954 and sometime later was named after longtime community volunteer and activist, Grant Howald. 

Grant Howald won numerous awards over his lifetime for community service. He helped select the site for the UC Irvine campus and served as director of both the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce. 

Grant Howald Park is a popular destination for local families, partly due to its many features, such as:

  • Athletic fields
  • Ball diamond, tennis courts, and basketball court
  • Parking lot
  • Picnic and barbeque facilities
  • Community rooms
  • Playground

Renovation plans for Grant Howald Park were approved in 2019

The plans include updates to lighting, seating, the sports field (changing to artificial turf to reduce wear and upkeep), and the restrooms. The 3 play areas will also be upgraded, with new equipment, grading, and seating to promote better accessibility and visibility.
