Kudos go to a bright spot along La Jolla's coastline: Calumet Park, the popular pocket park in Bird Rock overlooking the Rock Pile surf spot. It’s a nice nod to what open space can do for the community, drawing people (and their pooches) out for a walk. It’s also known as a good spot for weddings. Don Schmidt, a La Jolla Historical Society member, said when the California Coastal Commision gave developer Robert L. Haniman a permit, “that was the last major piece of oceanfront there. He had to set aside area for public park space.”
