We went to see the historic Mission Santa Cruz. In this area there is a lovely park to take a walk or sit at and enjoy this area of the city.

by far. The church was closed and is only open for limited times and is quite small. Down the road is the historic state park that you can look around for free. Again a small building compared to other sites and quite untidy grounds

We visited the Mission State Park in Santa Cruz. There is a nice museum, store, and of course the historic mission to see. The mission was founded on August 28, 1971 by Fermin Lasuen. It is one of the California missions. There is also in this area the larger currently active church Holy Cross Church founded in 1889, In the past we went to a wedding of a friend there. This is a special historic area of Santa Cruz to visit.

Suggested donation to visit the site is $5 per person. Parking is free.

Lokee park right in downtown=. It is located right in front of the Santa Cruz Mission and school. Make sure you look into the history, especially regarding the indigenous inhabitants that lived and died here that helped to build this mission, along with all the other missions in California!
