Not many American cities have parks with beautiful ocean views. Once you visit the breathtaking grounds of Shamel Park, you’ll never look at a country park the same way again.

Many couples start their journey to lifelong happiness together in intimate weddings featuring the park’s gazebo and reception area. Oftentimes you can find little ones romping and playing on the playground, while families picnic under the pine trees.

On Windsor Boulevard North, Park Hill in Cambria is a six-acre San Luis Obispo County Park with a playing field, swimming pool (open seasonally), barbecues, picnic tables and a children’s play area. Click here for a map.

Highway Closures

Highway 1 Closure

If you're heading to the Central Coast, be sure to be mindful of the stretch of Highway 1, 21 miles north of Cambria. Caltrans is busy with a major construction project to make traveling along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway a safer journey.

Highway 1 Storm Repair Along the Big Sur Coast Due to multiple active slides, State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and just south of Nepenthe (Mon 44).

Worried about Highway 1 Road Closures? Cambria and Hearst Castle are easily accessible from Highway 46 West from 101 South of Paso Robles or from northbound Highway 1 from the city of San Luis Obispo. Travelers from the north can easily take Highway 101 as an alternate route to Highway 1, which reduces travel time to Cambria by about 25 minutes.
