A word about legal access to Cove Place. It is best to park on side street Bayview Blvd, and walk the short one block south on Cove Place to the short public trail to the coastal bluff at the foot of Cove Place. (Parking along nearby Park Blvd. may be restricted, and area homeowners may rightfully get upset).
