"Why Not a Walk of Discovery?" Imperial Beach Things to Do Tip by lmkluque
Imperial Beach Things to Do: 19 reviews and 39 photos
Along the west end of Palm Avenue, a few blocks from the beach there are red metal poles on the sidewalk. At first they look weird and they each have a number attached to them. Look a little closer, they are surfboard outlines. They are different shapes and sizes and the number indicates the year they were popularly in use.
At the end of Palm, just before reaching the ocean there is a statue in bronze, "The Spirit of Imperial Beach." A surfer and children on a fantasy sand castle.
Next, about a block or so on Seacoast Drive look west down the side street just before the beach, there you'll see "Sea and Sky" a metal structure of a wave and wings of a bird. Then on Seacoast Drive at Dunes Park is, "Ocean Riders" three dolphins riding a wave.
Of course, at Portwood Pier Plaza is the oldest of IB's art works, "Surfhenge" also at the Pier Plaza is a mosaic tile along the seawall, it is called, "Illuminations" and was created to complement Surfhenge.
Last and though it may seem least too, I think it's quite intriguing. I don't know the artist or the actual name of it and I came upon it quite by accident. It is located at the west end of Imperial Beach Boulevard (just west of Seacoast Drive) I call it, "Art." Take a look at the fourth and fifth photos here. The fourth photo is what I originally saw and thought so weird. Later on I noticed it coming head-on and the fifth photo shows what it is. Can you see it? It says, "ART."
Sorry, the fifth photo is not very good and I'll replace it as soon as I can.
Address: Along Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive
